Well, I'll be honest, I haven't made much progress on any of my projects since last week. My parents came for a (Christmas) visit and there simply wasn't much time for crafting. I think that I only added two or three rows to Catherine's cape/poncho since last week.
One of my Christmas gifts was An Idiot's Guide to Knitting. Last night was the first night that I was able to cuddle up with it. I read every word of the first six chapters. A lot of it was review of what I've gathered from the internet, but I think that it was good to read and it's so nice to have it all in one place. It's going to be a cold day today, so I plan on cuddling up with both my book and one of my projects later!
Another Christmas gift was a lovely blue yarn. I'd like to make a baby blanket for Porcupine. I'm thinking maybe a knit one with cables. (But it would have to be pretty easy since I'm a newbie.) I do have a free class coupon from Craftsy, maybe I should take the Explorations in Cables, Patty Lyons class. . . Have any of my lovely readers ever taken a Craftsy class? Or do you have any pattern suggestions?
I am frogging my purple cowl and am going to start again. This time it's going to be a simple rib from the start. (A lot like this Ribbed Cowl from Lion Brand.) I am curious to see how the texture of the yarn will work up in a rib. (Wow, is that yarn impossible to photograph!)
I did put together a blog post yesterday that some of you might be interested in, it's my Crochet Shell Stitch Baby Blanket Pattern.
