Wow, almost a month since I posted! I really haven't been knitting much, so I haven't had anything interesting to say. I'm nearly done a fruit hat for Teagan, out of Handicrafter cotton, and I made one chunky baby hat that just needs it's ends woven in, but that's about it.

I did start knitting up a chunky cardigan from Yarn Girls' Guide to Kid Knits, but my guage was off and the rolling was way too much for me to imagine it blocking out, so I ripped it. Then I started on Accordian from, but I'm worrying that it's too wide. I was on guage for the swatch, so I'm going to go a little farther and see. It's all ribbed so it should shrink in a bit. Photos when I have more than an inch knit up.

I've been knitting a bit, just no time to take photos, so I haven't bothered posting. I made one and a half mittens to match the pink hood, it's WAY big. So the hat is too small, mittens too big, sigh. Teagan found the hat on the couch (my fault leaving it out) and tried putting it on. It was bound off but not tied off, so a LOT of it unravelled. I haven't figured out if I will fix it or start over and make it bigger. I really do like the pattern, I may try AGAIN with different yarn.

I finally finished the blue pinwheel baby blanket. I like how it turned out, but I'd like to block it. It's acrylic, but I still think some blocking could make it look even nicer.

I've started a chunky 3-pointed hat, and have lots more projects in mind, just not enough focussed knitting time. I really should start on some christmas knitting. I should decide WHAT I'm knitting, so I can start on it, eh?
