  1. The baby blanket looks amazing, the baby that gets it, is a very lucky baby :) Funny that you have the Zauberball in those colors, exactly the same ones that I bought. The Sunset I knit into Devon from the Cookie A, and the Berry I haven't started yet.

    Hope you have a good week :)

  2. Carin
    The Baby Blanket is so perfect. What a wonderful and thoughtful gift for your co-worker.

  3. As always I enjoyed your videocast. Love the baby blanket. I'm going to have to knit a log cabin blanket--it just looks fun. I started a Citron this week, the yarn (Marks and Kattens Fame color 659 blue,gray,black) told me that's what it wanted to be. I didn't do this, but later discovered the Crazy Lace group on Ravelry's Crazy Lace Citrons. One of those may be up next!

  4. LOVE how the One Crazy Year socks are coming along! I also have the orange, pink and purple skein and had started a plain vanilla sock awhile ago.

    Great job on the log cabin! You inspired me to start my own for my baby girl! I am on round 4 and still on the first balls of yarn (using Cotton Ease since the Knit Picks pills).

    Can't wait to see how your Citron and your Clapotis come along!

  5. Forgive me for not remembering if you've mentioned it, but the shawlette you were wearing in this episode...what pattern was it? It is super pretty, and I think I need one.:)

  6. The shawl I was wearing was the Ishbel I made this year for the Knitting Olympics out of Handmaiden SeaSilk.

  7. I'm glad you liked my name for your socks - they look great. I can't wait to see how all the other new projects turn out.

  8. That is a great blanket and love the story!
