September round up

This month I've spun more than in August, which always makes me feel good.

September 2011 spinning

I haven't shown you all of the finished yarns yet though. There are not enough Friday's in one week!
***
I didn't mean for this pair of socks to be my September socks (for my personal sock club), but I didn't get to knit a second pair, so they'll have to do. They are mens socks for my DD's boyfriend.
I started out with stripes changing each row, and got bored, so I changed it for the foot part. I was really glad when they were done.
The reason for so many pictures is Maggie's curiosity. See her nose growing?

I've already picked out the pattern, and the yarn for my October socks. Just have to find the right size needles, and I'm good to go.

And in chorus with the gang, I wish you all a wonderful weekend!!!

Love that you changed it up on the foot,these look great.
I see lots of colourwork possibilities in that new pile of handspun.
Good to see your three stooges relaxing together.

Wonderful weekend to you and the gang, too, Monika! The temps are getting cooler here, so that means cold weather knitting. I love it!!!

What a beautiful pile of yarn you have there. A couple of yarns there look like good candidates for a couple of patterns in Think Outside the Sox.

Enjoy your weekend!

Love the pics of all the dogs on the couch at the same time! The socks are really nice for a guy and I like the look of the phased out stripes a lot.

Love the changing stripes and the gang on the sofa.

What a beautiful pile of wool, it's lovely!! I think I would have changed from striping every row too, but I love the effect. Maggie's nose is so long now, she's really growing up fast.
I hope you and The gang are having a great weekend, they all look so relaxed lying there together!! Except Denny, who is giving me A Look!!!

Amazing pile of yarn! They are set up perfectly for me to sweep them into my knitting bag. :)
Those socks are fantastic, especially with Maggie's little face in there. Then again any pic of the your pups, make my day!
