I finished the baby blanket. It was reallllllly boring to knit but I am pleased with the result.


I had tons of yarn leftover so I also made matching booties and a hat.

Here it all is, packed up and ready to ship to Brooklyn!

I also finished the fingerless mitts

These were an impulse buy in a color scheme I wouldn’t normally choose — but something about it appealed to me. These mitts are definitely fraternal twins — not only did I screw up the patterning (since I put the project away for awhile while I worked on the baby gift) but on the second mitt, I forgot to change to the larger needle after the ribbing (rookie mistake!) so it’s a bit snugger than the other one. Oh well. I like the way they turned out, but I was really happy to be done with that project. Keeping track of the 12 different mini skeins was a pain!
