This is how far I've got on the baby blanket. I think that the moss stitch border is more visible in this photo - hardly the most exciting design, but I thought of it myself so I'm pleased.
There was lots of oohing and aahing at Sunday's Stitch n Bitch at the beautiful softness of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran - which makes this unbelievably 'boring to the point of tears' project more bearable. At moments of extreme boredom a quick fondle can usually give me another motivating boost. I chose it because it is machine washable and also aran weight - thus faster to knit up. Even still it's taking me an age to knit - and the deadline looms large - quite literally.
Lookee at the beautiful necklace I got on Saturday at the Miso Funky Market - I've been wearing this ever since I got it - it's utterly adorable and a total turn-around for me - I never used to like hearts ...
And I did a trade of some stitch markers with Ysolda for this beautiful hand dyed sock yarn - which I cannot wait to cast on - but am going to have to. Damn project diet - grrr! I am really feeling the pinch, and having to keep reminding myself why I'm doing this.
Anyways - Big Brother is on - and I cannot proscrastinate any longer - the blanket must be faced so I can move on with my life.
