Pink and Green, Pink and Green!

are Project Spectrum colors arent they. Well it seems that I cant get enough of them at the moment. Over the weekend I started 2 new projects, yes 2. I know the shame of it all and not finishing the other one that is so close to being finished too. First up is a baby blanket from a Sirdar book that I bought a few months ago now. I am using acrylic yarn, yes acrylic for a cot blanket, but is not rough or squeaky to knit with, and the colors are so pretty. I started knitting this one yesterday and completed about 30 rows of the pattern which is an easy one to remember.


I also started the long cardigan on the front cover of Special Family Knits on Friday night too. This one is for Isabelle and as you can see I have done just past the armholes. After all of this knitting, my shoulder and neck have been aching, so today I dont plan to do too much knitting as I want the pain to subside a bit. I had good news too last night when I phoned my aunt. We speak every few months, and she informed me that one of my cousins is having a baby, but wait for it, they are due next month and dont know what they are having. I will have to wait for her call to see what they have and then I can make something special for the baby. They already have a 2 year old daughter called Jindalee, so I cant wait to see what they name this baby. I will probably knit something for Jindalee too, as when they had her I had no time to knit anything and sent something store bought. I am so excited to be able to make them something, and perhaps I can knit something different that I havent made yet. Paul's friend's baby is due next month too, and then his cousin is due in August, so it seems that I will get to do a lot more baby knitting which I always enjoy making. Maybe I will just get out the baby books today and browse through some patterns to make and hopefully reduce my stash too. I hope you all have a wonderful crafty day!
