At last.

To the delight of everyone in our household, the baby blanket is finished and taking a bath.

soaking



Remember how after last weekend I thought I was mostly done? Well, it took another full weekend of devoted knitting to finish. Unblocked, it was about 32 inches square, and I plan to block it to about 35 inches square.

I'm glad to have it done in plenty of time so that I can add in something that I might actually enjoy knitting. I have a skein of Smooshy in summer sky that should end up as either a baby bog jacket or a tomten to round out the gift.

Marking the end of another agonizing process, here are the colors I have chosen for my fair isle yoke sweater.

Good?

I think those colors are really good. I can't wait to see the sweater (and the blanket!) once your get going on it.

Beautiful colors. They are very similar to the ones I plan on using for the Autumnal Equinox. That will be my next sweater knit after I finish the Yoke in the lovely citrusly colors!

Oooh, beautiful colors! Nice and autumnal. I can't wait to see how it turns out! And I can't wait to see the baby blanket after it's bath, either :)
