Knitting FOs!

How in the world did it get to be September?? Not being in school (as a student or teacher) for only the second September that I remember is very very strange. I'm excited for fall, but in my head it still feels like July or early August!

The knitting front has been a bit slower, but still productive. I finished a pair of Carolina socks using yarn that a fellow LimeNViolet messageboarder sent me - german sock yarn rules!
Carolina Socks - FO!
Jackson is impressed, as always:

His expression in this one is better, but it came out blurry!
Haha!

I've made 1.5 pairs of practice socks from Cat Bordhi's new book (which I'm in love with): Little Sky Socks:

Little Coriolis (I don't know if I'll have enough to make it's pair)

I've started the "Tangled Yoke Cardigan"

I've gotten through the first part of the garter rib repeats and am ready to start decreasing, but I've got questions - when I plan it out I'm off by 7 rows!?!? That's another post.

I've started "Miss Dashwood"

I've gotten back to work on the Big Bad Baby blanket, the Baby Surprise Jacket has stalled, and I'm about to start another pair of socks. Still haven't felted what needs felting. Jackson's zebra coat is slow going.

I'm struggling to pick green or orange for the baby's room - hopefully Dan will guide us to the right decision so I can get paint tomorrow and it can be painted on Friday. The baby's been kicking up a storm. :) I passed my glucose screen - so glad that I don't have to go back for the 3 hour test, but it was good knitting time!

Jackson's working hard in his obedience class. He's making progress, but some of the stuff I don't really care about - HEEL? for a dachshund? If I want him right next to me, I'm better off picking him up! Still good to work on following directions though. :)
