After sickness and injury and sickness again I have finally managed to complete my second strip of the baby blanket my knitting group is making for a friend. I didn't take photos. It looks just like the first strip did, but with the colors in a different order. The first strip can be seen here.
I had been not allowing myself to do other crafting until I had finished the baby blanket strip, because I knew if I did other stuff I'd never get my strip done. There have been so many, many things I have have been wanting to do. I signed up for the Flirty Apron Swap a while back. You know I love me some aprons. For those of you who love aprons like I do, there will be another round of swapping in the near future. I used Butterick B4087 view C. I love the finished product, but the way it was put together left a bit to be desired. If I make this pattern again I will definitely make some changes. I hope my swap partner likes it.
Yesterday I got to make a project I've been itching to make for a couple months. I am so pleased with it and glad that it's done.
Just by chance I happened to find this on clearance the other day. It goes perfectly.
The carrots make me smile.
Coming soon: a new shoulder bag for me, summer dresses for Anneliese and more!
