Sweaters, scones, and a big bad baby blanket






Started the Big Bad Baby Blanket from SNB. The pattern calls for 2 strands of Koigu held together, I opted for one strand of bulky. I started it last Thursday and I'm halfway done. It's a very mind-less, Zen-full project and I hope to have it finished this weekend.
I told myself I can't start another project until I finish the blanket so it has motivated me to get it done, FAST!
Although I am working on these:
Flair and Emerald for me and Drive-Thru for Lollipop. I've found another sweater I want to start. The Lotus Cardigan from Norah Gaughan modeled here by Cirilia from Skrilla Knits. Simple, stylish and looks good with jeans. I need one! I'm having trouble getting the pattern for it seems to be sold out everywhere, which may be for the best since I should finish the other 3 before I cast on another.
The photos in the middle are of fabulous food and friends. We had our Skeins and Scones get together a couple weeks ago. It was kind of like our Wednesday night meet-up of Chicks with Sticks but on the weekend with yummy food, mimosas, and a lot more time to knit! I really loved the fact that I didn't have to leave the house. Cheers to all who came and brought awesome treats. Can't wait for next month!

I'm glad we are making this a monthly event. Nice to change it up and share good food.

I made the BBBB in bulky too! (2 strands of fingering weight held together for a baby blanket - yeah, right!) looks good, and we all need some mindless knitting every now and again, eh?
