New projects on the horizon?
Well, the sweater vest is trucking along and will be ready for ribbing at the arms and neck soon. No big news there.
One of the UFOs lurking in the knitting closet is the log cabin blanket from Mason-Dixon Knitting. Now don't get me wrong, I love those gals over at MDK and love their book. I love the log cabin blankets in the book which is why I started one of my own. I do not love my log cabin blanket. I dont know what it is... it just looks blah. I'm planning to do the "cool colors" on one side and the "warm colors" on the other a la one of their gorgeous examples. I'll go a littl bit longer with it because I'm still hoping it could be a cute baby blanket (for some unknown baby) backed with a whimsical, colorful fabric. We'll see.
On to something more positive. I have these three skeins of Peace Fleece calling out to me. I just don't quite know what they're saying they want to become. Peace Fleece is a workhorse wool in the cloth diapering world but since we're not using those any more, I don't need covers. It felts beautifully. Maybe it wants to be something for my Craftster swap partner! Renee are you out there? *wink, wink*
I'm eyeing some tweed yarn for a Tomten jacket for the Scooter. Will probably cast on for that in the days after Labor Day!
