Year of Projects: long overdue update
I am writing to you from sunny beautiful Yakima where we have been attending Sam's State solo competition and visiting again with my sweeties. I was thinking I had better get busy and get an update because I have missed a couple of weeks--and imagine my surprise when I realized I have not done an official update for all of April!
Before I share photos of my recently finished object, I think I will collect my scattered knitting thoughts first--
My works in progress still consist of my charity baby blanket and my Esprit Folk vest for Adelaide. I am making slow and steady progress on them both, but got a little sidetracked with the baby hat I finished this weekend.
I failed miserable at Knitting and Crochet Blog Week--only managing to post twice out of the seven days, but I high hopes for next year if the event happens again. I did enjoy reading many blogs of people who did participate-knitters are just nice supportive folks!
I am hoping to participate in Milo May, hosted by Georgie Hallam, aka Tikki on Ravelry. I love this little vest pattern-it is so easy and seamless to boot! My Grandys look adorable in them and they knit up so fast. I better get my yarn ordered as I plan to order it through Fancy Image Yarn.
My finished project to share is my baby hat knit up for my neighbor's baby, Lucille Aster.
I used Ginny's pattern, found here. This is proof that magic loop can be done on a 12" cable! I am thinking about knitting a little white flower to plop on top of it, but am still on the fence about it
Until next time,
