Now that my socks are done and the weekend is finally here, I decided to take some pictures of my current WIPs. Here is the progress on Meghan's baby blanket (knit almost entirely in the sun last weekend at the lake and is the main reason for my current arm-bended-weird tan line!)
I think it is really coming out nicely and I am almost finished with it!
I initially started this pattern for her because I swore she was going to be having a girl! She's not. I will be donating it to a silent auction at my church. It's one of those easy, mindless knitting jobs.
I recently found this pattern for this adorable tank top/ruffle-y blouse that I instantly oggled... and now I can start on it. I had initially bought this amazing knit picks yarn for my own design project, but decided to use it for this pattern instead. It is called Kourtney by Mishellee Zaharis and I made my very first gauge swatch EVER last night. I have made baby sweaters, afghans, a cardigan for my mom, washcloths, hats, socks... but never, EVER checked the gauge first. I am way too impatient. But, I decided to do it right for this project and knitted it up quickly so I could start the top today. The funny thing is, that after I knit the swatch, I had no clue what to do with it!!! I think I did it right but I wanted to check. So, here's my picture...
Do you have to make it a perfect square? Somebody HELP!!!
Happy Knitting and Happy Weekend!!!
