Annnnnnnnd, it doesn't look much different. Although nothing is finished, I do have some items that highlight my progress that I can show off.

This eyelet lace is going to keeelllll me. Seriously. It is a totally boring knit. Zzzzzzzzzz. But I know it will look gorgeous in the end. I'll be focusing on this for the rest of August, so I'll be working on it like a madwoman. Then I'll put it down for a bit and focus on what needs to be done for September. I'm participating in Ms. Snarks Secret Snark-A-Sock-A-Long. There's eleven (or twelve of us) who are going to vie for Ms. Snark's hand spun by working on the Garter Rib socks. Cast on date is the 1st so I wanted to make sure I had everything I needed. Here's my swatch:
And I cast on for a second try at the Hell Socks. This time using larger needles. Hopefully it won't be so much of a struggle.
September will also see me finish Seamesh as I haven't dedicated too much time to it in the last month.
So the recap for September will be:
1) Garter Rib Socks
2) Hell Socks (probably with re-knitting the first one I did ages ago)
3) Seamesh Scarf
4) Pimlico Shrug
Should be doable...urrrrr... I think.
