Notes from My Weekend


I've got a progress picture of the Forest Friends Blanket for you today!!  I'm SO HAPPY with how the colours are working up!!!!  There's still a ways to go yet, but it's getting there :)

Last Friday I started a pair of afterthought heel socks using the pattern from The Knit Girllls.  I've always wanted to try this type of sock construction and to be honest, I'm a little tired of doing heel flaps at the moment :)  I'm really hoping these turn out!!  I'm still on the leg portion, but I can't wait to put in the waste yarn for the heel!  If all goes well, maybe I will get to that point tonight.  I worked on the blanket for most of the weekend, so these have been sitting on the sidelines, but my fingers are itching to knit some socks now!  (thanks to my cousin TL!!)  The yarn I'm using is Dream in Color Smooshy in the Petal Shower colourway that was gifted to me by Becca in the Cupcake Swap back in May.  This is my first time knitting with Smooshy, and I am really enjoying it! 

I do have a finished project to share today!!  How exciting!!  Since I was coming to stay at my sister's house for a few days I thought I'd make a little hostess gift for her, and I just got a ball of the new Dishie yarn from Knit Picks so I thought some dishcloths were in order.  The pattern I used is "Crochet Dishcloths by Lily" and they are super fast and fun to work up.  I did get a chance to use them while here, and I really like how the yarn is holding up!  I think I'm going to be ordering more of this in the future.

On another note, I have to apologize for slacking in the blogging over the last while, but to make it up to you I thought I would have a sort of catch-up week where I will share some of the projects that I have missed posting about.  I was on a bit of a finishing bend a bit ago and got quite a lot done that I haven't shared yet so I thought this would be a good way to do that. 

Anyways, I hope you are all have a fantastic Monday!!  I'm just about ready to go out for a bit and have a visit with my cousin TL who is down here for a few days!!  Just wait till I show you what she gave me last night!!!!!!   

Much Love, xx
