The baby blanket is coming along nicely, ideally I'd like the final measurements to be 36 inches by 36 inches.  However, I'm also gauging (guessing!) on my yarn amounts and definitely do not want to run out of any given color so I keep squeezing my blue and purple skeins that I'm alternating in the middle to decide when to start decreasing.  I do love a challenge.


My banana leaf shawl is a delight to knit and pairs well with audio podcasts.  I cannot read and knit with this project.  If I wasn't working on the baby blanket at night during tv time, I'd be working on this project instead.


I had high hopes of finishing this cowl over the weekend and that didn't happen due to living life.  Yesterday I added the next section and see the finish line!

What are you working on this week?

  1. All of your projects are beautiful. The banana leaf shawl looks like an interesting pattern and the shade of yarn you have chosen is beautiful. The baby blanket is gorgeous as well - love the colors. And, of course, the cowl is wonderful.

  2. I’ve been pretty focused on my Junegrass sweater during my summer knitting time but I am itching to cast on something new.

  3. That shawl look so wonderful! And I love the color changes on the baby blanket. I can relate to the squeezing, but I usually have too much yarn left.

  5. I really like how your baby blanket is knitting up so far. I knitted two rows of my Purlbreak yesterday. I need to work on a post of the kittens right now.

  7. The color in the banana leaf shawl is so pretty. I'll be anxious to see how the yarn amounts cooperate with your baby blanket. I cast on a scrappy shawl or one from leftover yarns - lots of soothing garter stitch and a pair of Kindling fingerless mitts for my DIL for Christmas. I need a small carry around project so perhaps a hat out of odds and ends to donate to charity. Have a good rest of the week.
