Weekend Knitting

My little sister got married this past Saturday (Congrats, sis!)


I got to spend a lot of quality time with family that lives far away from me.

And I got to spend hours and hours sitting and knitting--in the airport, in the plane, in the car. I finished up a garter-stitch scarf in handspun and started a new pair of socks.

I'm also working on the Mystery Beret (Ravelry link) in some bubblegum pink handspun.

Baby Blankie

The sweater I was working on has been put on hold for the last couple of months to work on a baby blanket for a former coworker. Several of us at work put our money together to buy the blanket, and one of the girls wanted to learn how to knit, so she's making one stripe and I've done the others.

Now I'm trying to decide whether I want to put the stripes I've knit together to form diagonal squares of color, or more randomly. Any thoughts?
