So, besides the famous blanket, I've got a couple of other projects in the works. I started a baby jacket from Special Knits by Debbie Bliss. So far, it is turning out pretty darn cute! Although, Debbie Bliss occaisionally smokes crack and her pattern hasn't made complete sense, but with the collective minds at SNB, I've done pretty well with it. It is my Tuesday night project because it is easy to work on and chat at the same time.

I modified the colors a little bit because I'm not using the Cashmerino. So far, so good and unfortunately no pink will be on the jacket. However, there are a ton of other cute things in the book that I am feeling pink for!

And, we also have progress on my Toasty Toes socks. I've finished the body of the foot and started on the gusset decreases. It is my first toe up sock and I am so proud of it. I'm really enjoying doing socks this way!

I'll be MIA for the next week and a half. I'm going to Atlanta for a baby shower my mom is hosting for me this weekend and to drop Olive off and then it is off to California for a wedding! We are going to be in LA and then to San Diego (cause I wanna go to the zoo) and enjoying our last vacay as just the two of us!

Have a fabulous day everyone!

See, now, I wouldn't think that fair isle would be good to work on while chatting. At least not for me. I can barely do garter stitch in one color and talk at the same time!

The sweater will be darling though.

Have a great time at your shower! It got a little cooler this evening, so hopefully it will be nice when you are here. And your knitting looks great!

I love the sock pattern and colours. I haven't done the toe up socks yet.

Can't wait to see the baby sweater completed. It's going to look so cute!

That baby sweater is going to be gorgeous.
