Right before I started feeling really crappy I finished up Turnstile. That's the infinity scarf cowl thing I was working on. It's soft and the perfect length for me to wrap twice. I don't have pictures yet of that. I really want to get some good ones since it turned out quite well. Except for the crazy Kitchener seam I somehow managed to do inside out... More on that when I have pictures. I also finished the sweater I was working on for Evelyn. I wasn't able to make it to the birthday party since I worked that weekend. So it sat until this part weekend when I wet blocked it four hours before I was giving it to Jess. I let it dry on a towel in my back seat on the way down to Syracuse, but it was still damp when I gave it to her. Cue face-palm. Then of course I didn't get a post-blocking photo either.

That particular morning I also blocked my two gifts for Raelynn as well. Kimberly wasn't able to make it to out little meet up so I had to bring back the hat and mitt set, but now, if the sun ever comes out, I can take post blocking pictures. Here are the pre-block ones.
Back at the end of June I whipped out another Entrechat in one day. I haven't gifted this one yet either.

It took me a while to get my knitting mojo back even after I started feeling better. So the first thing I did was crank out a couple of dishcloths. I did three incarnations of the pattern Petal Dishcloth. I've made it before and I like it. It's got a slip stitched edge which I really like for circular cloths and these turn out fairly large. I only meant to make one, it turned into three.
You can never have too many dishcloths. I also have a funny feeling I'll be needing lots of them for the kiddo.
I'm working on a hat now for Evelyn. She has a big head and the orange one I made is snug on her now. I think the one I'm making now looks small, but I'll see once I finish it. I got to see pictures of Kylie in the hat and mitten set I made her, they both fit! The hat is from last season and has held up well. I love MadTosh for gifts too.
I've acquired more yarn of the past several months but again no pictures of that yet. I have so many things to catch back up on. Hopefully I'll get a but caught up before the baby comes, because after that I'm guessing all bets will be off.
Until Later, Happy Crafting.
