Yarn Along

Well this will be a super quick update...

I have been working on the baby blankets for my 4 friends expecting. Here is the latest update:
This is the Chevron Baby Blanket pattern knitted with Dishie yarn from Knit Picks. I LOVE how the chevrons are turning out.
Still reading Lost Symbol by Dan Brown. I cannot wait to see what everyone else has for updates! We are off to Oktoberfest this weekend. EiEiEi O! Happy Wednesday.

Linking up with Ginny.

WIP Wednesday

Hello Knitters!

This family is back at a normal routine. Up early, N gets on the bus and we go to work. While I miss summer already, it is nice to get into a routine. My knitting has been taking off lately. I cannot resist starting new projects. I guess this means I will have enough WIPS for every Wednesday post! Yep, that is a good way to justify my casting on addiction.
I received this beautiful skein of ToshSock in Ginger colorway from my birthday. I could not stand to just look at it anymore so I cast on the Monkey pattern and these socks are just flying off my needles. I cannot wait until they are finished.

I am being a good girl as well and working on the baby blanket. I have completed 8 repeats. I think I will try for 10 and finish the border. I love the leaves pattern!
 I cannot wait to see what is on everyone's needles. Linking up with Ginny today.

WIP Wednesday

The big day has come and passed. N is now a kindergarten kid and I am trying to adjust to our new schedule. He gets on the bus, all smiles and my husband and I head to work. The new routine. We go to bed early, get up early and just try to figure out the rest in between as we go.

I have 4 friends expecting and that means 4 baby blankets in queue. I started the Leafy Baby Blanket by Leyla Alieva. I love LOVE love it. It is coming along nicely. 
I used KnitPicks Dishy yarn. I love making blankets out of cotton for their easy care. This yarn feels great and has wonderful colors. I will do another baby blanket in the same pattern and yarn. With 2 down. I need to pick 2 more and get the yarn! 
I have been reading here and there. Whenever I can fit in a free 5 minutes. I just finished Dan Brown Digital Fortress and I am not working on his Lost Symbols. I would like to read the Divergent Series once I am finished. I have an itch to read the Harry Potter Books but after watching the movies and have never been able to keep my attention for very long with those books. 

I cannot wait to see what is on everyone's needles! Happy Wednesday!
