Little Orphan Blog
This project was started with leftover stash yarn, and was originally started for my niece's birth. FYI- she's four years old. Part of the reason it took so long was that it used baby weight yarn in a small needle size. In retrospect, a bad choice for speed, but it resulted in a very nice closeup look.
Not one to laze about, I immediately cast on for a new baby blanket- this one in a medium blue worsted weight yarn. I wanted to make a cable patterned blanket, so I pulled out my grandmother's stitch pattern book and flipped through until I found something suitable. Three cable patterns and one lace pattern later....
I had a couple of flights last weekend, so I had some major progress.

So instead, I cast on a different scarf. Of very bulky proportions... Size 11 needles, and it has rows of wrapped stitches, so I think this will be done very quickly. I need some knitting progress!

Call: False Start!
Actually, I could say that I've had about 5 new projects over the last few days. I've been starting to knit with this great turquoise dk weight alpaca, but everytime I found a new lace pattern, I was bored. Or I hated the way the alpaca made the pattern look. The lace patterns were not crisp enough, and the cables didn't pop.
But now, I think I found a pattern. Branching Out. From Spring 2005- thank you ravelry for showing me the way!
