More New Projects….

Well I seem to have knitter’s “startitis” I have recently started 3 new knitted projects (one of which will be a long time ongoing piece).  My niece is having her first baby in November and it’s going to be a boy.  So of course he needs a blankie.  I’m knitting him a baby blanket with sailboats on it.  I love the soft yellow color!

I’m also in the process of test knitting a shawl pattern.  It’s a fun knit with the cabled sections.  The yarn is Knit Picks Stroll Tonal in Golden Glow.

The third project is my long term project.  I’ve caught the “Blankie Mania” bug and started a Sock Yarn Blankie.  My friend Missy has been working on hers for a few months and now she’s taught me just how fun the little mitered squares are!  The plan is for the blanket to include 1008 little 2.5” mitered squares.  Time will tell how many squares I end up knitting LOL.  This picture shows the first 20 squares.

At the rate I'm going I'll have a collection of sock yarn to do something like this in a few years. It looks like fun.
