A project for every occasion...

Lots of variety here at the moment.
I'm done knitting the socks - just need to weave in some ends and they will be finished.
The rib turned out to be perfect for knitting in company and there was lots of that this week.



The weather has been perfect this week for a little sitting at the beach with knitting in hand so I started another hat with some silvery purple yarn from the stash.



I have progressed from here but don't have a new picture, I'll need to add another colour to finish this one.


The Pastel blanket has all the squares joined - it just needs a small border to finish it off.


I joined the blocks for the centre row with a plain pastel blue colour and then joined the row in with a plain lemon, borrowed from another unfinished blanket - guess it will be a while before I start a new crocheted blanket.

 This weekend is going to be all about finishing these.

Currently trying to decide whose socks to cast on next, I have the patterns picked out.
The stash busting is going well so far, even encouraging some finishing of ageing projects.
Have a wonderful weekend. Stay cool.

Pretty spooky- I read this post http://whipup.net/2013/02/22/10-glorious-and-tricksy-socks-to-knit and thought of you, and then yours was straight under it in my reader. Happy coincidence? Love the blanket.
