Finish-a-Long Q3

The reality that we are half-way through 2014 is exciting and scary all at the same time. Exciting, because it means we are closer to our youngest two son's weddings {September and November}; scary because that means that another year is flying by way faster than I can keep up with.
I hope to finish 4 projects by October. They are:
1. My selvage block quilt. This is a carry over from the last quarter. Only 12 more blocks to go, but I keep putting it aside for other projects.
2. The Single Girl quilt. Two block are finished, 10 more to go. They are all cut and ready to sew. I am paper piecing this project.
3. I started the Monkey Socks in Vancouver last week. I am using the Wonder Sock yarn in Graffiti and Asphalt colorway from Gale's Art on Etsy. I am not a fan of patterned socks. I love the way they look but find I make too many mistakes when knitting them. I am over half-way finished with one sock so far.
4. Quilt the Pack Patch Mini from Chase's QAL. It's all ready for basting and quilting.

With the upcoming weddings and a bridal shower for a friend's daughter {I am helping with}, I think this is more than enough. Three bees and the Handmade Birthday Club makes will add plenty to my to-do list, too.

Another thank you to Katy for hosting and running this fun linky party. I still have not visited all the finishes from the last quarter. I better get organized.
Finish Along 2014

I love your list! So many beautiful projects. The single girl has always been something I wanted to do. Is the pattern still available?
