Summer knitting.....

I have been knitting, I just haven't been posting. We have had an influx of visitors and it has been great. I have a hard time sneaking away to blog about knitting, when really, two of my three fans are here in town : ) So, I finished the Tiny Elf's blanket and I love it- she does too. It really went fast at the end, which is odd as it is knit from the center out. I think I just can knit faster than I used to. Progress is good. The yarn is warm and fuzzy after a trip through the washer and dryer- I splurged and used the dryer. I think she will like hers as much as elder elf likes her own fuzzy blanket. EE noticed that TE's blanket had pink on it, and yet hers did not. I noticed that her blanket had a hole. EE requested that I fix the hole with pink yarn so hers would have some pink too. Cute and no problem, as I had some pink left over!

Project specs:
Pattern: Vogue Baby Blankets
Yarn: Plymouth Encore Worsted.

I also have been working on Sizzle- due to a gauge issue, I have re-started.

The blankets are the best! And sooooo appreciated and used. It would be a shame to have them in a draw when they are so cuddly and comforting. Brava! for your fortitude and perseverance in finishing the project. The little elf I am sure is delighted and loves her blanket as much as her big siter. How many skeins would it take for a double?
