Goodbye August

Looking at my pictures from this month I can see that I was too busy starting things and trying out ideas to actually focus on any of my projects.
Legs using Ann Budd's Diagonal socks pattern and feet using Arch Shaped Foot pattern
There was one lonely finish, the stripey socks from the gifted yarn a bit of a no brainer project as the yarn did most of the work. Just what I needed while the germs were residing.
Sure, I totally used 'J's photo
 Let me say making socks for someone with small feet is a breeze (and maybe why I feel like the socks for the Father are taking forever, luckily for me I won't be seeing him this weekend)
I have finished one of the blue socks, but getting a photo is proving a challenge this week. One purple sock is three quarters done and one burgundy sock is almost half way. They will all get their partners next month.
I did try a little baking last weekend after Fiona published a recipe for Ginger cake, I baked mine in my muffin tray and they were delicious, I may even have waited for them to cool before the taste testing began, Delicious.
Wishing you all a lovely weekend filled with Sunshine and cake.

It's not hard to get lost with starting all sorts of projects, you eventually will get them finished. And the socks....love them. Isn't it amazing how that yarn just does the pattern? I love it.
Cheers, Anita.
