It's been awhile...

But I'm back... I have finished a few things, but forgot to take pictures. The one project that took up most of my time was knitting a baby blanket for my MIL's boss. I used this pattern. It was a very easy stitch pattern that I was able to memorize, but It took longer than I had expected and I was working on it until the very last minute. I used Red Heart TLC Baby in the Fizzy Print Colorway. The colors matched the nursery set that the mother picked out perfectly.

Well, now I'm just about finished with the Yorick scarf from Knitty. I decided to make it to wear to work for Halloween. This is also a pretty easy pattern and it will be my first felting project. I was very nervous the light yarn wouldn't felt but my test swatch felted very easily. I can't wait to finish this one.

Have you had any trouble with the pattern for Yorick? I have trouble with the end of the nose/beginning of the eyesm area, ending up with either 1 extra stitch or missing a stitch...I've ripped it out a dozen times already...ugh
