OOPS!

February kinda ran into March. February was crazy busy at work (fiscal year end + working in accounting dept = CRAZY), but we got through it so....
Oh you came here for knitting didn't you?
Not much to show really. No progress to report on my "Lauren" sock. But I did start a plain one.



Amanda (I mean Santa) left a ball of yarn in my stocking for Christmas and to make Santa happy I started knitting with it. This yarn is very soft and nice to knit with. Love the colors too.















A couple of weeks ago Amanda found out that one of her friends is going to have a baby in September, so I pulled some yarn out of my stash and started a baby blanket... because even though September is 6 months away I will probably need all that time to finish it. I have 3 skeins of this Bernat DenimStyle (I hope it will be enough to make a decent size blanket). This is what it looks like after one skein (11"). I know there are a lot of Feather & Fan patterns out there, but this one is in the Spring 2009 Fons & Porter's Love of Knitting magazine.
Well I think that is everything... Happy knitting!

Love the colours in that sock yarn! It's going to knit up wonderfully - can't wait to see it all finished.

The baby blanket is looking great so far. I usually like to crochet blankets and afghans...seems to go quicker. Haven't made any in awhile...should have one as "mindless knitting/crocheting" though...well, for when I actually have time to do crafts...

I have not seen (in person) that sock yarn yet. I love the colors of it.

The baby blanket is looking beautiful. I 3 to make by next month, want to help me with that??

Love the baby blanket - very elegant. Eager to hear if you have enough yarn. Great sock color too - similar to some I'm knitting (no pics yet).

I love the baby blanket. My sister just had a baby, so the time to be starting a blanket was....months ago. I'm still thinking of doing it, and I've been leaning toward a feather and fan one. I don't think I've heard of that mag though:(

I always love the feather/fan pattern because it's easy but comes out looking like it's difficult. Always gets plenty of ooos and aahhhs from non knitters.
