The baby blankets are done! And they have been finished before either baby arrived. Granted I was cutting it pretty close, considering that Petra’s due date is next week. However, Petra’s blanket is all packed up and ready to mail tomorrow and Silas’s blanket has just been removed from my needles.
I’m happy to be done, and think I’m going to spend a little time knitting for myself. Someday, I would like to finish the banded peasant blouse, but of course that will not be my focus. Instead I’m going to cast on for the Lily Cardigan, and continue to work on my sock collection. After the Lily cardigan is finished, I’ve got a long list of pieces that I would like to work on, including trying lace knitting once again. No matter what I work on though, I’d like to knit up some of my stash yarn before purchasing any more yarn. Moving all my yarn in November really proved to me how much yarn I have. I also now have my sock yarn sitting out in baskets in the computer room, which serves as a daily reminder not to buy more sock yarn.
