The list gets smaller

My bathmat is completed. I was very excited. The reason that I wanted to make this specifically is because I wanted it to exactly fit the space between the tub and the wall. You just can't buy a store bought mat this perfect. It just plain garter stitch but I love it. It is so soft and cushy on your feet when you get out of the shower. And at the end of the week it goes right into the washing machine to get cleaned up for the new week ahead. I've washed my log cabin bath mat several times and they just come out perfect out of the machine. Thank you Sugar and Cream!

Went this weekend to see our friends in PA. Yvonne picked up this book below for a knitting muggle like myself. I can't wait to comb through every page and see what I can make!

So now that the list has one less UFO on it, I've moved on to the said baby blanket. I have one more ball of yarn to complete the bulk of the blanket and before I start on the edging. I will shoot a picture tomorrow to show! I'm so glad to have an extra day off this weekend. Tomorrow will be some chores but some knitting too! It's turned very very cold here this weekend (20 degrees!). It's just perfect weather for knitting.

Happy Knitting!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year all. No resolutions here but one of the things I'm going to strive to do is to complete some of my UFOs. Here is one of them. It's a bathmat. Just knit. I had made one in the past for my guest room that was the log cabin pattern from the Mason Dixon book but wanted one for my bathroom too (they are so soft on your feet!). I'm making progress and should be finished shortly.

I really don't have many UFOs but here is the list in no particular order:

1. The above mentioned bathmat 85% complete

2. Button/stripe child sweater 75% complete

3. Koigu Socks 20% complete

4. Beaded scarf 5% complete

5. Adult sweater 5% complete

6. Baby blanket 60% complete

Keep on knitting!
