Have you heard of having a sprinkle? One of our young gals at work is having a baby next month, and they are having a sprinkle for her in just a couple of weeks. So, I really had to haul out the afghan I was going to knit for her and get going on it today.
It is an easy knit, one that I have knit before in similar colors for the girl who does my hair. Big needles and double yarn out of Cascade Yarns, Pacific. It is a good project to do tonight while watching the ice skating finals.
Speaking of ice skating, have you picked out your Ravellinics project yet? I believe I am going to pull out my Eadon from Briar Rose yarn. I started it a couple of years ago and it might be a nice project to finish during the Olympics.
I had to set my Tangerine Rose from Knit! Swirl! out of Dancing Colors while I am working on the baby afghan. I finally got it to the point where I am knitting back and forth and not in the round. You can see the marker from my last post about it.
Even with finally being at the split, there is a lot of knitting to go on it. The colorway of Dancing Colors is Agate. It is a wonderful mix of colors of red, orangey red and olive green.
Maybe I'll still be knitting on my Tangerine Rose for the Ravellinics. I could push myself to finish it during that period. But, that's a month away so I still have time to decide. For now, it's a baby blanket that must be finished first!
