Hello Again

Since I found myself in the mood to really tackle a little knitting, I decided to say Hello Again to some of the projects I have had laying around needing some attention. The first is the baby blanket I wrote about yesterday. Unfortunately, as soon as I posted that entry and bound off the body of the blanket, I discovered I don’t have enough yarn to do the intended binding. I’m not sure what to do about that for the moment so I have put that little project aside.
I pulled out this little sock square that I’m working on out of left over bits of sock yarn. I think I’m going to try and make it blanket size but I may get bored and make a pillow. We shall see. In the meantime, I have added a few more rows to this neglected little project.
I FINALLY (YES, FINALLY) felted this little bag that I have had knitted for 9 months now. It’s just been floating around waiting to be felted. On the last trip home to Chattanooga, I made sure to bring it back with me and last night it took a go in the washing machine. I love the result and for now, it will live on my desk in the city to hold the things that will get me through Nanowrimo 2010.
I feel like I’m fall cleaning.

Back to the Knitting

I’m spending some time this weekend getting back to the things I love, knitting being the most accessible. I’ve been working on this baby blanket for awhile, but now that I have a friend that is about to pop one out, I’m prompted to get it done quickly.
I think this will be perfect for lounging around on the floor for the little one. Especially nice with the fall breezes coming through the open windows.
I’ve been looking at the blogs and checking out everyone’s projects on Ravelry and the pictures uploaded to Flickr and I am inspired by all the crafting that I am seeing. What crafts are you inspired to get back to this fall?
