But there has been knitting, so let's get right to that!
So lovely to start off Plucktember on Labor Day by the pool just knitting away. This new fingerless glove pattern knits up quickly in Primo Sport. I just love cables!!
The first glove was done by the end of the week, but I wanted to knit it up in a worsted weight version too.
So at the soccer game that morning I made a bit of progress. This is in Plucky Knitter's Scholar. Definitely not Primo, but still lovely.
I did put the knitting down to play with this cutie for the Notre Dame-Michigan game!
Enjoying our walk at halftime!
She's a good luck charm for sure!
By the end of the weekend there was a finished glove!
I thought I'd have the second one done in no time, but with working out of town one day this week, working late another night and not feeling well (long story, but I've been dealing with some chronic pain issues at the radiation site on my head for the past few months...and with trying to work more, I'm off the meds that were really helping manage the pain because they made me too tired to work and trying to find new meds to help...fun fun), well, it isn't done yet. Hopefully I'll finish it at knit nite this week.
The Lowney Sock KAL is going strong too over in the Plucky Knitter group (as well as many other KALs!).
I wanted to share some of the fabulous projects being shared!
The project below is Linda's Lowney sock, aka lgphillips on Ravelry, and I'm in love with the colors she's chosen! My favorite part of KALs are seeing a design knit up in different colors, but especially when color work is involved!!

This is Chris, aka YezSoCrafty's, fabulous sock. I just love her 2 color version. I also think Lowney sock knit up in just a solid single color would be fun too.
Thanks ladies for letting me share your projects with the blog!
