As of tomorrow, Jeeves will be at the dealership for an entire month, NOT counting the original 2 weeks before he came back with less working than when I took him in. I have no idea when I might get him back, though I admit I am hoping I might have him back (and fully working) by the end of August, though I am trying not to depend on it. Which creates a problem for the August Project of the Month. It can't be a sewing project as I may not have a sewing machine this month, and starting another knitting project would just delay all the other knitting projects which seems counter-productive when I'm trying to reach 100 finished projects this year. So, I'm hoping I can learn enough about the serger to make an entire project on it. Granted, I've done napkins completely on the serger, but we have more napkins than we know what to do with--I just can't think of any additional napkin options. So, for right now, there isn't an August Project of the Month.

In desperation, I went back to my lovely old standby:
What, you don't measure your knitting by cat??????????
