No FO :)

It's been a while since I posted without having an actual FO to show.  That was before my daughter was born.  Lately, I've had a little more time to knit.  Not that much more time but maybe I will also have more time to blog!

I'm not saying this is going to be a long post!  I still have to get up early tomorrow morning :)

So, recently, one of my high school friend visited me.  Last year, she went to Iceland and as she knew I love to knit, she bought me a beautiful skein of yarn!  I have no idea what it will become - probably a winter accessory - but I really like it.  Thank you so much Isabelle (she is not even a knitter and we don't see each other very often either)!

Then, last year, I gave away all my yarn leftovers to a lovely lady in Alberta.  I was really relieved because I do not like to keep things that I don't use.  In that same order of idea, I also try to knit all my yarn.  This is why I started the two following projects:

1. Aviatrix Hat with the leftovers from this shawlette:

2. Easy Peasy Newborn Sock Hat with the leftovers of these recently completed socks:

3. I did not cast on for this one yet, but my sister has asked me for a pair of socks for quite a while.  The other weekend, we chose the yarn and pattern. Here is the colorway:

I can't wait to cast on. I'm debating whether I should finish the two projects above before or at least finish one or knit all three projects at the same time :)

Well, this is all I have for now... and my bedtime has passed.  Sorry for ending this post so abruptly.  I hope you understand... Good night :)

FO: Plain Vanilla Socks

Summer is still here, in September... I love it!

And it allowed me to finish these socks and show them before fall comes.  These are the Plain Vanilla Socks in the not so plain Watermelon colorway:

What a simple pattern. Almost too simple!  Perfect for this fun yarn!  I've always wanted to knit socks in that colorway from Biscotte & cie.

It was fun to take pictures in the grass. We've had such a beautiful summer. 
Here are my socks sunbathing:

 See my project page on Ravelry.

I hope you all had a nice summer and that you can also continue to enjoy it for a few more days! 

Happy fall knitting!
