I'm on a roll

Bent Creek's Wedding Row
32ct 2 over 2
This was so quick and easy. I love it! Now to figure out how to frame it.

Close up
Not sure what I'll be starting next. I went on a bit of a shopping spree online last week so I'll have lots of new stash to choose from pretty soon.

I can knit!

I never thought I'd say this but I've been knitting up a storm lately. Beep beep is what started it all. I just had to give it a try for my little man. He's getting quite the collection of Hot Wheels and needs somewhere to drive them. This has been going suprisingly fast and I'm about half done. Would probably be closer to done by now if I'd quit starting other projects. This thing is gonna need some serious blocking.

Then I decided I must make these socks. Well, they're more like leg warmers since they're toeless and heeless but that's besides the point. So far so good. I pray I have the ambition to make the second one and that it turns out the same size as the first. That's not asking too much is it?

Last, for now, is a diagonal baby blanket for a cousin due in May. I like the stripyness of this yarn.
I haven't completely abandoned my other crafty stuff. I started Bent Creek's Wedding Row a couple weeks ago. I switched to brighter colors and would probably be finished with it already if not for that darn knitting up there getting in the way.
