Oh Baby

I’ve been working on this blanket (Pattern is Baby Love Diagonal Blanket by Lion Brand Yarn) for the past week and a half. It’s mindless as all hell but I think sometimes you need a mindless knit before or after a challenging one.

I’ve also been stuck looking at KnitHacker a lot. I’m not gonna lie, the website/concept is REALLY cool but I dislike all of  the crochet things (Hello. It’s not CrochetHacker) or finding something that I don’t think is extraordinary like leg warmers. If there’s some crazy color work, then SURE. I’d love to see legwarmers! But a plain pair of ribbed leg warmers? No thanks.

It’s been getting warmer in San Diego, and as it happens every year when it heats up, my hands get clammy. I’ve been trying to think about working on lighter weight projects (you know… once I finish this blanket) and I’ve been thinking lots about socks or shawls. Nothing makes me happier than knitting a shawl. Mmmmm shaaawwlls.

Is it warming up where you are? What are your warmer weather go to knits?

    I just moved to Dallas from Buffalo, and of course THIS would be the year I got a big jumpstart on my holiday knitting. I’ve been working on Purl Soho’s Chevron Baby Blanket, and–plus side!–I’m almost done. Downside? What feels like five pounds of densely-worked fabric in my lap. My cat likes to nap on it, though.
