I must say, I’ve been on a roll lately. I’ve started and finished (or nearly finished) several projects recently. It feels good.
First, I finished the baby blanket! YEAH! I never want to go through that again but I am soooo happy I did and I am equally happy that it is over. I may do another blanket in my life but I am definitely using bulky yarn and big needles. Otherwise it is too much effort and too much knitting for something I can’t wear! That’s just my feelings about it.
Next, I finished a simple chunky skirt in Malabrigo’s Mecha. It is wonderfully fuzzy and warm and perfect for my attempts to throw of the oppression of Chicago’s long and blustery winter. I don’t care what old man winter says, I’m wearing a skirt no matter what. I’ll post a newer picture soon. I didn’t have time to take one as I was rushing back over to Loopy Yarns to show off my skirt and get 20% off my next yarn purchase! 🙂
I also finished a bright teal chunky cowl. I can’t remember the yarn I used for this because I’ve had it in my stash so long and the label came off. Oh well. This cowl has served me well the last couple of weeks.
I have a little toy bear that I’m finishing up. I literally have just one foot left to finish.
I’ve also started a new tank with some Louet yarn I purchased in Albia, Iowa. I hope to have that project well underway (and completed) by next post.
