When I Used to Knit

Rather than a long and incredibly dull post, I'm "bulleting" and doing photo highlights. Here goes....

*When I used to have time to knit, I was working on my first afghan. It's a feather and fan Christmas gift for a family member. I've done eleven skeins so far and still have six more to go. Gauge is a tricky thing, huh? I was planning on a nice-sized "couch blanket" when I started this project however at the current rate, the afghan will be somewhere between a queen or king sized spread. (Note to self: Swatch, Dana, Swatch/Learn the principles of gauge too).






*My friend, Teresa, inspired me to do this Knitty project, Calorimetry.



*As a break from the afghan, I started this sock. It's a "vanilla" sock pattern.



*I also finished the Yarn Harlot Poncho.



Again, I was knitting up a storm the first couple of weeks in November and then THIS HAPPENED...

What Marianne said - what'd I miss?

I was wondering where you have been - I've missed you!

The blanket is absolutely gorgeous; it must be for a family member who you love very, very much. I would find it extremely difficult to give away.

All you FO's look great.

Again, so glad you're back!!!!!!!!
