Stitching Status for the Weekend

Hello, Summer Friday! My favorite day of the week. I live for weekends, I really do. Although I’d love to be doing a lot of this all weekend…

I know that I’m always busy running around and doing other stuff. It’s supposed to be gorgeous out this weekend and I hope to spend a lot of it taking Cher on long walks but hopefully I can get some stitching in too!

I’m almost finished with a baby blanket for a friend and her baby girl who will be here in a few weeks. I had a phase for about 2 years where my girlfriends were popping these babies out like rabbits and I felt like all I was doing was knitting baby blankets. This is my third baby blanket of the year and hopefully my last this year. I really get tired of making them but I know they’re always a favorite gift to give. But I’m on track to finish this one in a mere 5 days, sometimes being a speedy knitter really is advantageous.

This week I also got in two orders of yarn (hello sales and discounts!). How gorgeous is this Madelinetosh Vintage?! I’m so ready to start on my fall projects but I’ve still got a few summer things to check off my list before I dive into all my wool knitting. I definitely plan to make another Togue Pond tank (or 2…I have a friend that really wants one and keeps saying how much she loves it) and I have some really great cotton blend yarn I was thinking of using to make the Trail Jacket. My office is insanely cold and layers are a must all summer long. Plus I have some gorgeous glass buttons I picked up at the Sheep and Wool festival that I think might look gorgeous with my mint green yarn. We shall see. So that’s my weekend and my knitting plans, anything good on your needles?

  1. No knitting but I’ve been spinning and have to put work in on a baby blanket that I promised almost two years ago. But it’s so hot, I’d rather be laid out like Cher. 😀

    • I was productive! Finished a baby blanket AND knit a baby cardigan. Even got a moment to cast on another Togue Pond tank for my BFF 🙂
