Counting the days to Spring

Honestly, I can’t wait for the warmer weather.  We haven’t had a ton of snow, but we had several days of snow throughout the winter and I am so sick of it.  It has been melting and I can’t wait until it’s all gone.  At least the temperature has been in the 40’s and 50’s and the sun has been out most days.  Today is a dreary rainy day, but the rain has to be melting the snow.  Right?

I haven’t been knitting much.  I had an upper respiratory infection and that has kept me down.  I am almost over it all together and I am happy about that.

I did finish the vertical lines baby blanket.  I used a size 9 needle with Encore Colorspun in color 7650.  This is for charity.

I then bought more baby yarn to make blankets.  I got Encore color 0215 and Encore Colorspun in color 7749.

Encore for Baby Blankets

After finishing the vertical lines baby blanket, I started my third Sunny Baby Blanket.  This time I used a yellow yarn (Encore in color 0215) with a size 8 needle. I am making this pattern smaller than it is supposed to be.  I cast on 108 stitches and won’t have as many repeats.

I also bought yarn from GnomeAcres in her fingering and worsted weight to make bunny rabbits out of the color bunny foo foo.  I hope to get one made for Easter for my great niece.  The pattern is BonBon by Susan Claudino (no knit sherlock on Ravelry).  It’s so cute.

I have so many things on the needles, so I have to get back to those projects too.  Maybe the nicer weather will get me knitting?
