Hump Day!

Today's title brought to you by the day of the week :) Wednesday is widely know as Hump Day! Oh what a great day, only 2 more days of work left for the week! And today, we have pictures! Finally some good light, my little camera, and I was all set!

Here is the progress on my 2nd first sock! I am actually almost done with the sock now, but I really love this shot of it :) I worked on my sock on the metro today and I got a few crazy looks from people, but no one said anything, which I am okay with!

Next we have progess on my Market Tote from the Bag Style book. It is supposed to be made from hemp so it holds up better, but I'm using cotton. I'm going to line the bag with muslin and do two straps instead of one! I think it will turn out just great for my new housemates!
And since there is SOO much cotton (608 yards) I will be making a few dishclothes once I am done with the bag!

This is a scarf I completed for a friend in California. She requested a scarf for the mornings that she goes running with her family, so I had to make her one! It's the not so skinny scarf from Knitty Gritty, also found on Through the Loops. I was extremely inspired by her son's scarf, I decided to try it!

A full shot just before packing it up and mailing it to California! I just love the fringe. It was so easy to do!

And finally, a peak inside my notions bag. I just put most of my bamboo straights, DPN's, and circulars in there with my smaller bag for stitch markers, scissors, measuring tape, etc. I just love Vera Bradley!! I can't get enough of her bags!
I hope to have a completed sock by this weekend! That way I can start a new pair for my SIL who LOVES pink.. I will show you the FABULOUS Lorna's Laces that I got for her as well as my Jitterbug by Collinette! They are both BEAUTIFUL!!!
All project details can be found on my Ravelry page.. Blancheknits83 :)
Have a great Hump Day!
