Backslliding through July

Well my WIP count went up from 12 to 15 last month! Still no pictures. I really have to do that at some point, as Ravelry is looking pitiful.

One of the "new" projects is actually a scarf I started back in January, knit an inch or so and then forgot. The other two really are new, a baby sweater (which I confessed about in my last post) and another Noro Striped scarf for commuting.

So here's the list as of the end of July:

Baby - 1
Little Bubbles sweater

Hat - 1
Bonkers Hat

Household - 1
Log Cabin afghan

Mittens - 2
Yummy Mittens
Twined Wristers

Novelty - 1
Mini Flag

Scarf - 4
Angel Pearls
Unisex Scarf
Merlie Scarf
Noro Striped Scarf

Shawl or Wrap - 2
Leaf Lace Shawl

Socks or other footwear - 1
Travelers Socks

Sweaters - 2
Philosopher's Wool cardigan - will be ripped as soon as I find it!

I'll also confess that I finished the Noro Striped Scarf today, but that's only one reason I have faith the number will be lower by the end of the month.

I'm going to Idaho with my sister this month to visit an aunt. The only plan is to hang out, catch up and knit. I suspect we may do some siteseeing since she has never been, so I may be over estimating the amount of knitting I'll do!

But in anticipation, a few weeks ago I dug out a lot of the WIPs, made sure all the necessary yarn, pattern, needles, etc. was with each one and packed each in an individual project bag (yes, I've bought too many of those on Etsy!). Seriously, I believe 7 of those WIPs are ready to go with me.

No internet access in Idaho (well there probably is some somewhere, but not where I will be), but if we do any siteseeing I'll post some pics.
