Pastel Chick

Normally I don't think of myself as a pastel person, but I did notice a trend when I was photographing my three current projects for this post. Oh well, I guess that means spring is here!

I took a few days off from Mariah, because the size 4 addi's and all the hood purling was hurting my hands. Then I realized that since I was knitting flat again, I could go back to my Bryspuns. Voila! Much more pleasureable knitting= big progress on Mariah. I knit several inches on the hood yesterday, which means this baby could be done within the week! I am wearing it as I type!

Love it!

(Or I could just bind off right now and have a big vampire collar. )

Molly says, "Gimme another cuff and block me, Baby!" Straightforward pattern, 3 balls of yarn, no further explanation needed.

This is my new project: "A Good Bias" from the new spring Interweave Knits. Pale blue Cotton-ease, a new favorite yarn. This was my Oscar Knitting, good thing the show was pretty much a bore, because the pattern took a lot of concentration. I have never done lace before. I think I have a better grasp now, but it is definitly not "Knit with the kids around" knitting.

Which gets me to thinking, if I'm going to finish Mariah and Molly within a week, I'm going to need more mindless knitting on the needles to avoid Project Panic. Socks will do in a pinch, but a day or two and that's enough of that. Got to start rummaging around for the summer yarns......

Hey Emily--I love your knitting-very impressive to someone like me, whojust finished their very first (child's) poncho, and a felted bag-!I think knitting has helped me get through January/February and almost all of March! I think I'll stick w/ it, at least for that reason! Anne L. (I like that shrug, also)
