Happy Wednesday! It’s been over a month since my last WIP post. While there are many projects hibernating in the bags and baskets, four projects have been receiving attention in the last month. Two are now FOs (more about those on Friday) and I’m spending time on the two in the picture.
Checking my reading lists, I’ve read six books since the last Yarn Along post. Cozy mysteries are quick reads. I’m currently reading and enjoying The Hunger Games. The idea of the “games” is disturbing and although I was skeptical, I was surprised at how quickly I was pulled into the story. It’s been a fairly quick read and hopefully I’ll finish before Fall Into Reading begins on Saturday.
I’ve been admiring the Wingspan pattern for some time and a rummage through the stash found the perfect yarn (Paton’s Lace in the midas colorway). I’m loving the easily memorized pattern and the yarn’s color changes. I pick this up when I want to knit and relax a bit. No hurry to finish.
3 Stitches Podcast (Ravelry group link) is having a Wrapped in Stitches Preemie Blanket Drive to benefit the El Paso Children’s Hospital NICU. I’m using Baby Bee Sweet Delight Pomp to knit a Diagonal Baby Blanket, which is a larger version of Grandma’s Favorite Dishcloth. I decided against all garter rows and added stockinette sections to keep me engaged. Aiming for a 30 x 30 square to be finished and mailed by October 14.
