Lots of FOs

Firstly, a change to the blog. I'm not really using flickr anymore because they put a limit on how many images you're allowed to have, and that's balls. I'll just provide links to all the images instead. Just click them and don't be lazy :P

Finished a few things.

Finished the baby blanket for Joe and Diana's little one, and I finished the mobile monster bunny cell phone case for Lisa.

I went to the Knitter's Frolic again yesterday. A few good deals, but last year was way better. I didn't pick up a swift like I wanted to, but I did manage to get a nice blocking kit (8 long blocking wires, 4 small ones, and 2 flexible ones, with a package of T pins) for $35. They gave me the wrong kit (the upgraded one) and I didn't notice until I got home, so that was $10 I saved.

I also got a nice bag of 5 chunky weight Noro Silk Gardens for $35, as well as a new row counter, and a nice bottle of knitted garment shampoo. Nice haul.

I'm going to pick up a swift for my birthday from Linda's on Tuesday before knitting night starts. Looking forward to it. :)

FO - Pinwheel blanket and matching booties

Pinwheel 4

I actually finished this on March 30th. I've just been so busy lately, I haven't posted about it. It turned out quite nicely, and I had enough yarn left over to make a pair of booties for baby to be.

Note: this is not for my baby to be because I am not pregnant again :P When that happens again, I will be sure to be knitting away merrily.

I have started another baby blanket for our friends Joe and Diana who are also expecting. Their baby is due in May, so I have a tight deadline to finish the next blanket. I have opted not to do another pinwheel blanket because I like a little bit of diversity. The new blanket will actually be a nice baby's textures blanket. Four different colours and four different textures. I hope it looks nice when it's done.
