And now they're here!! Thank you so much for helping us make this tough decision.

Three Weekend Baby Blanket

This is the baby blanket I started on our road trip to Seattle. As usual, I was a "bit" optimistic thinking I would finish the whole thing over the weekend. One, I forgot how easily I fall asleep riding in a car. Two, I was completely unprepared for a stunningly beautiful day on Saturday. Bob, his son Adam and I walked and walked and walked the city.

Knitting socks in tandem

Remember a couple of months ago when I was struggling with Second Sock Syndrome. After knitting with the Magic Loop Method several times, I've realized that I prefer knitting with DPNs. It's just a matter of personal preference. We have a selection of Magic Loop/DPN sock knitters in the building.
