Knit Goes On

Ta-Daaaaaa! Big Bad Baby Blanket finished and ready to deliver. Berroco Touche is sooo soft! Not too bad when you think Jayden wasn't supposed to be here for two more days! I dislike knitting seed stitch but I do love the way it looks. I am quite pleased with the blanket. I hope that he drags it around with him until he starts kindergarden.

I have been BAD! Added to my Stash - Rowan Soft Lux in Cedar (extra fine merino, angora, nylon and sparkle). I had been wanting this yarn for such a long time but wouldn't buy it. In fact, I looked at it the last time I went yarn shop crawling in Houston. Didn't get it! Ever so casually, not intending to buy, I was browsing Jimmy Beans Wool and there it was! ON SALE! How could I NOT buy it? It's my favorite color and has a tiny sparkle in it.............
I have 10 balls, yep, bought a whole bag of it. I think there is something to snuggle into for the Fall coming my way! I am going to find my scented oil, Noel, put a drop on a cotton ball and seal it with my yarn in a knitting tote. It will be heavenly to knit when I decide on a pattern.

Finally, a sock of my own design is OTN. The yarn is Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in Poppy on a #1.5 12" Addi Turbo and the beads are Hobby Lobby! It is a simple lace design for Summer and I am having a blast with it! You probably won't see it again here on the blog but my knitting girlfriends will see it on Thursday's Knit Night Out.

Crystal Palace Yarns has asked if I will knit a couple more socks in solids for them. Ann Norling Patterns (Marge) wants my knitted socks for the new photograph on one of her sock patterns. How cool is that? I am surprised AND very pleased!

I was on your blog and your knitting is lovely. I wondered what pattern your used for the baby blanket or is it all in seed stitch? I also wondered if that yarn you mentioned is washable.
