Today was a rainy, gray Sunday, but Steve and I had a lovely drive to and from the Outer Banks to visit my parents, who are spending the week down there. We spent a couple of hours sitting in a sunroom with a view of the ocean, with a short walk on the beach during a break in the rain. I got a lot of knitting done on my second Noro sock, and we all enjoyed the relaxing day.
I was going through my photo files after we got home, most of which have the label "knitting", and I found a couple I never got around to posting. This is a heart washcloth that I wasn't thrilled with, but should use anyway. And here is the heart on the package I gave my mom for her birthday. I meant for this heart to be used as a jacket pin, but I didn't get around to adding the pin, so. . . .
I also finished the baby blanket on Wednesday. It should have lots of good thoughts knitted in because I was watching the Cranford series for the second half of the blanket. So sweet.
I made it car seat/stroller size, but it should work in a crib too. It's made from Encore Worsted, which is machine washable, and has little flecks of blue and yellow throughout the white.
And finally, I made Steve another hat, to replace the too small one he received from me at Christmas. I think that makes me one hat behind in my plan to give him a new hat each year. I can only count four and we've just had our fifth Christmas together.
I used Galway Highland Heather, which is a rustic yarn he loves, but either I had a bad batch, or I've had it long enough that moths got to it, because the yarn had lots of broken parts in it, which was Highly annoying! Oh well, it's done now. By the way, he has a pair of matching socks in the same yarn. Told you he loves it!
