500th Post

Welcome to my 500th post for this blog. I'd like to thank Google for Blogger, my Husband for continued tech and yarn stash enhancement support, the Beautiful Knit Knite Lades for their inspiration and support and of course my children for their love of all things knitted.

I have knitting content to share. Oh yes I do. I have a few FO's to share.

First off the Rainbow Blanket of never ending Garter stitch. I made it to block 32 out of 55. This project languished. It MOCKED me for months. I finished it off with a rainbow applied i-cord border. The i-cord gives the blanket some stability. It's a fun pattern and I found parts of this knit enjoyable. I also learned that I do not enjoy knitting blankets out of worsted weight yarn. I would try again with a bulky weight yarn but no more worsted weight blankets for me.

More felting fun. The Felted Needle Vase felted up nice but lost it's fun little roll at the top. It's a solid little vase/deep bowl. I want to try this pattern again in the future.

I knitted up another cupcake for my girlfriend Michelle. I must say I LOVE magic loop. I knitted this on my size 4 addi turbos, love those needles, LOVE them. The cupcakes are fun and quite fast little knits.

I'm making slow and steady progress on the set of 10 FSM's. I have two completely finished and noodly appendages and meatball pairs for five more knitted. So three more sets to go.

I have some new Knit Pick's circs to try out. I'm thinking two at a time socks. Fleegle's toe up sock pattern is my first choice. We shall see.
