Purple & Pink Comfort Fade Cardigan - DONE!

Started Jan 1/18
Finished Feb 24/18















Going to knit it up with knit side and not purl side showing.

Jan 28/18 - not going down a size for the ribbing

Jan 31/18 - not doing decrease for the sleeves. I don’t want them too tight.

Feb 9/18 - added some color A to the sleeves

Feb 24/18 - I messed up the amount of stiches to pick up.  So I just marked the center stitch and made sure the section of short rows was in the middle.  For example color A I knitted 18 stitches past the center stitch w&t, then knitted another 18 stitches past the center for a total of the 36 sts .  For color B I knitted 33 sts past the center and then 33 sts for a total of 66.  For color c 48 sts and color d 63 sts.
I was worried about running out of color D since I ran out of color C so I only did 11 repeat of short row 87.

I LOVE how it turned out!  Now to block and weave in the many ends.

Scrappy Blanket - DONE!

Started Aug 26/11
Finished Feb 25/18





This is my 2nd scrappy blanket attempt. I frogged the first one since I like this one better. I don't like sewing pieces together and this one just lets me continue. This will be a long on going project with requests for 3 more already! It's going to be more of a triangle then rectangle (which is what I was trying for)
