As summer winds down. . .

Last night, I finished the last of my summer classes. Phew! So glad to be done!!! I'll have three weeks off, sort of, before the start of fall semester. On the 23rd I'll take the first of my certification exams.

In the meantime, I've been knitting a bit here and there and trying to clear my plate of past projects to get going on holiday gifts. First up, Hannah's birthday gifts!

Hmm, what else? I'm working to finish up a hat commission, just needing to attach the brim. That should be done soon! I've also completed my second Great American Afghan square, brought Starsky out of the UFO zone, and am working on three silk and silk-blend samples for Jen.
