For this round-up, I only have two FOs. but there are a handful of WIPs, a pinch of goodies, and as always the word for the month.
As always you can find a link to the video round-up at the bottom of this post.
Done and Dusted
I picked up buttons from a fabric store in my local shopping centre, which I think are perfect for this cardigan. I haven't blocked it yet because it's too hot to wear, but it can be worn without blocking.
The yarn is Rosies Moments in Splashes of Colour, which is a merino/nylon blend. I used a little under half a skein to make up these socks, so I'm going to use the remaining yarn for another sock design. Find out more in the WIPs section below.
On The Needles/All Hooked Up
The KAL is running until the end of the month and anyone who takes part will receive a free copy of the pattern once the final draft has been written up.
I stated earlier that I'm using the remainder of the Rosies Moments yarn to make another pair of design socks. I'm not sure if these will be my August socks as I'm planning on making another pair this month so that I will have a total of seven socks in my possession for the Box O Sox Kal being hosted by Kristin of the Yarngasm podcasts (I gave my March socks to my niece).
These will be released as an Ebook along with Überlappen, hopefully by the beginning of the September.
Last month I had a nice little horde to show you, this month my goodies are little bare. I had two packages come through my door in July.
The first was yarn for Mister's Alas jumper and two sets of Addi sock rocket needles (3mm and 3.5), the second was the July crochet club box from For The Love of Yarn (Fortheloveofyarnuk on Etsy).
Waiting In The Wing
The only other projects I have planned for August is a baby blanket for a relative who is expecting. It's going to have a similar design feature to the Apphia blanket. I'll also make some hats and booties.
Word For The Month
The Word for August is Proverbs 3:3-4. I go into more detail in the round-up, basically, be known for your heart towards others, it will bring you favour and respect.
