I'm having trouble staying focused on one project at a time over here, not that I do that very well anyway. I'm almost finished with the back of this baby sweater for a new little one joining our extended family this spring. I love the soft creaminess of this organic cotton yarn by Mirasol. A white table is not the best place to photograph it, but it's truly lovely.
I've also been working on these, my first pair of socks. Well, I've actually mostly been ignoring them for the last week. All that tiny, yet beautiful, yarn and tiny needles just doesn't flow as well for me as other knitting. To top it off, and I've never had trouble with this when using DPNs before, but I have lines of looser stitches where my DPNs meet.
See...lines! Does anyone else have this problem or am I just sock-knitting inept?
On another note, I'm loving this Bust-The-Stash blanket. There's something about pulling out the remnants of all the hats, blankets and scarves that are keeping my family warm and threading them all together into a cozy, colorful blanket. Finn keeps asking if it's for him, but I'll likely just leave it downstairs on the sofa for everyone to share.
Our nature table received a little bit of an update this week, including our Hearts for Haiti.
The card seemed quite fitting considering the crazy winter weather we've been having for the last week. Our area is supposed to receive more ice/sleet/snow in a couple of days and the kids are going to school tomorrow (late) for the first time in almost a week!
