projects up my knitted sleeves

I am working on the second of the Pitts twins' knitted merino baby blankets. This will be the fifth one in two years, and I am really looking forward to its completion. Luckily, I love the colors I chose on this one and I am enjoying it much more as a result. I forgot to take a photo of Curt's blanket before it was gifted - when I drop off Wynn's, I will get photos of both babies with their cutie blankets to post.

This is Koigu Kersti, which is a beautiful hand-painted merino. Kersti is always handpainted, and this particular color scheme (knitters call it 'colorway') looks like ice cream with sprinkles. It knits up very evenly and makes me look like a better knitter than I am. I love it.

Next I plan to start finishing my mom's houndstooth Chanel knitted jacket. It is a knitted version of a Chanel pattern. I will get that together for photos. I hope to have it completed before early fall and then keep it for her as a Christmas gift.
