It was a busy first week of teaching, but now I’m free until Monday. Woo hoo!
I’m hoping to get some serious work done on the chunky sweater/jacket thingamabob. I’m using Rowanspun Chunky in the color Fern. Looks more like moss to me.
And I’ve finally visited all the great links you all sent for the summer catch-up contest — thank you! I still feel like I missed a whole summer’s worth of crafty bloggy action, but I got a lot out of the highlights.
Go here to see all the links. Or, for the highlights of the highlights, read on for a few of my very favorites:
moonstitches’ crocheted hexagon blanket
paloma’s Avita baby cami (free pattern!)
kristy’s knitted dodecahedron (crazynerdycool)
jenny’s lovely ellybeth dress, part of the One in Ten auction
alison’s very first quilt!

jenla’s fiber farm play mat
a mingled yarn’s pretty summer skirts
kelly’s ironwork socks (I LOVE these!)
schrodinger’s sweet-ass bowling bag
