Missing My Knitting

Posted in Finished Objects at 8:24 pm by merknits

I’ve barely knit at all in the past month, mostly due to a busy work schedule and some travel (including a mostly free trip to Playa del Carmen in Mexico, so I can’t complain)!  But this has left me virtually no time to knit at all.  I’ve not been able to go to Stitch n’ Bitch in weeks! 

Before all this craziness, I was able to make a baby gift for my friends Sarah and Greg who just had a little girl.

Pattern: Bunny Blanket Buddy from Lion Brand (you need to register to get the free pattern)
Yarn: 1.5 balls Velvetspun
Notes:  The yarn is super-soft, but a huge pain to work with.  In the end it worked out ok though I wish I could have tightened up the stitches on the head a little more.  But it is a cute pattern and pretty fast as well!

Hopefully I’ll be back again soon!
