I just got the urge to attempt the temperature scarf once more. My original attempt was a little too ambitious.
This time I’m going to keep things simple. And because I can never have things too simple I decided that I’m going to make two of these. One for my husband and one for my daughter. A representation of the year they each entered my life.
It sounds corny and maybe it is but I don’t care. I have the yarn. I have a project in mind. I even have a story. (Which isn’t always needed but is nice.)
I have joined a mystery knit along (MKAL). I’m sent the next part of the pattern and the yarn every month. I’m in love.
It’s super fun and the colors are working wonderfully. I’m actually looking in my stash to see if I can find some yarn suitable for another.
I’m also debating on trying to change the pattern to make it work with worsted weight.
If you are curious these are the places where you can find the yarn and the pattern.
I have finished my baby’s blanket. Now the kiddo can show up any time now.
We are in the home stretch for the arrival of the little one. It can literally be any day now. I’m also nearing the completion of the baby blanket. Just a couple more color changes.
I feel like now its just a battle of the wills. Who will be victorious?
I got some good knitting time in last night. So much so that I made it to the next color!!
So that makes me almost half way… I’m beginning to think that I can finish the blanket before I finish the kiddo.
Recently my knitting mojo has been next to nothing. I’ve been working on the same two projects for months now. I can’t tell if its because I’m bored with the projects, or that the pregnancy has me so tired that even knitting seems to zap all my energy.
Knitting has gone on my to do list for today. I’m bound and determined to get this baby blanket done before the kiddo.
Also Alex is going to be busy next week, which means I’ll have a lot of time to myself. I’m thinking about using this opportunity to either make a big push on the blanket, or starting a new project. Just to see if I need a change of knitting pace. For science… yeah… science.
I’ve been working hard on the baby blanket this past week. I was rewarded with the wonderful feeling of switching to the next color.
I decided that I didn’t want a plain, mono-color blanket. It just didn’t suit me. I also wanted lace, because… lace.
