I’ve been doing a lot of knitting lately.  I actually lay awake at night thinking about what projects I am working on and what I want to do next.  I keep telling myself that I am a quilter and should be thinking about new quilting designs.  All well.  The seasons of one’s life.  I do partially blame knitting podcasts as to this obsession.  I have been listening to The Knitmore Girls and Never Not Knitting.

I finished the front of my old-school sweater.  I was talking to Tony last night and he said “You’re not actually going to wear that in public??”  Ummm…you bet I am!  Proudly!

I think this will be my next baby project, after I finish Elias’ winter sweater.   🙂

It’s from Debbie Bliss‘ book Design It, Knit It: Babies.  I think they are so sweet looking!

I’m trying to decide on color since I want them to work for baby boy #2, but also for a possible girl in the future.  I am leaning toward the cream since it is a bit heavier than the others and has a bit more stretch, so I think it will hold the shape better over time.

I also purchased this pattern online for myself from Never Not Knitting.  It is called Shawl Collared Cowl. Tony has agreed to take me to the yarn shop in honor of my birthday…maybe this afternoon????  I need some yarn for this project!  (Picture from Never Not Knitting)

And finally some progress on my Granny Squares.

Granny Squares in motion!!  There’s always help around here.
