I wanted to be on vacation last week

I wanted to be on vacation last week but had to settle for this week. Last week the weather was great and you barely needed a jacket. This week is not starting out too good as it is rainy dreary and a mere 44 degrees. On the bright side it’s great knitting weather.

Off the needles today is a baby blanket for my boss’ wife who is expecting a baby boy. It went pretty quick and is called Encore 8 Hour Baby Afghan P274. It was only cast on April 23 and I finished it up this morning. The yarn is Encore Colorspun Worsted which I bought online from Webs during my recently documented yarn binge. By the way, they (Webs) were very fast. I got the order on the following Tuesday! Anyway below is a picture of the blanket. Considering the weather, the picture came out fairly well.

I also made a chunky baby cable water bottle cozy with some of the leftover yarn. I didn’t like how the picture came out, so you will have to wait to see it. I am going to post the pattern too, since someone may want to use it.

Also on my needle are some No Purl Monkey Socks. I can’t say much about how the pattern is going since I am still on the ribbing. Well there was the baby blanket to finish.

That’s all for now. Got to go make tea and knit my socks (or design a blanket).

Lovely yarn used for this blanket! Great, yet simple pattern really showcases the yarn!

Beautiful blanket! I will have to check back for the pattern. How many strands of yarn did you use? It looks nice and bulky. I know what you mean about the weather, it was really dismal here in Boston. I should have knitted, I didn't get much else done!
