working toward finishes

As I mentioned in yesterday's Love Your Library post, I really want to "clear the decks" and finish a bunch of old WIPs this month. These are the first I'm tackling: my leyburn socks and Riverbank III.  They're both fun, fast knits and with school starting here and me returning to the carpool lane, I'll have plenty of consistent knitting time again!

And I'm still sewing, of course! This is the first batch of placemats. I'm using a beautiful set of fat quarters that coordinate, so these will be mis-matchy with none of the prints repeated. I started with the fat quarters since I discovered that they were the perfect placemat-ish size (I will be trimming them down quite a bit). After this set I have some fun fall themed prints that will make great seasonal placemats to add to my collection!

Today I'm linking up with Tammy's Stitch-Along Wednesday, Ginny for Yarn Along, and Nicole for Keep Calm Craft On.


  1. Oof, my WIPs have certainly gotten out of hand as well! I'm ready for summer to be over-even though I don't have a carpool lane to sit in, my summer schedule gets so busy it feels like all my knitting time evaporates! I'm loving your placemats-the different fabrics are so much fun!

  2. your WIPs are coming along great, but I'm crazy in love with your project bag! Where did you get it?
