Non-flurried activities,

at least on my part, has included some knitting.

Would you believe me if I told I have made some more socks?
¡Los Fresa Platano Monos Locos! (aka 12/12+1 and as "The Strawberry-Banana Crazy Monkeys")
Started August 20 and finished September 13.

Pattern: ¡Los Monos Locos! – The Crazy Monkeys!
Yarn: Sunshine Yarns
Colorway: Strawberry-Banana

I also made a Gaia, also known as a small shawl or scarf. It used one skein of Noro Kureyon Sock. This started out as one of those "I don't know what I am going to do with it when it is done, I just want to make it" projects and I just have to say that I absolutely love the colors that were hiding inside the skein of yarn. (I am still not entirely sure what happens to it now that it is done, but I had fun knitting it.)

I have another shawl in the works. This one is using some yarn that was a gift in a yarn dyeing swap. I am absolutely loving these colors as well, and am really enjoying the idea of having a shawl for fall, even though I have never really though of myself as a shawl person.
There is also some incognito gift knitting happening around here and I will admit to having 13 and 14 of 12+1 on the needles.
