On the needles: a hooded sweater for my daughter, in Homespun Colonial. I bought 3 skeins for a dollar at a yard sale, which also included a couple of sets of needles and some bedspread weight cotton thread. Maybe I'll make snowflakes for Christmas!
Also on the needles: another knitted blanket, in Navy "One Pounder", for to drape on the back of the hubby's new Daddy Chair. (Thanks for helping me model it, Pringle Kitty!) I made one exactly like it for my son last year, in Cranberry. The details are kind of pretty:
I changed the diamonds to be a baskety-type stitch, to jazz it up a little and to match the border. Not sure if I'm loving it, but I've gone too far to rip it out.
