Almost Olympic Time.....

My favorite time......

About eight years ago I was packing up our house and heard the announcement that the Olympics were going to be held in London for 2012.
I can't believe it has been 8 years since we moved back to the states. WOW....
Where has the time gone?

I have to say watching some of the footage makes me miss London even more!

With all that said .....I have decided that while the Olympics were on, I would finish up some old WIP's.
Leaving me with a clean slate for Fall knitting!
With all these new yarns coming in daily I CAN BARELY CONTAIN MYSELF!
THEY ARE JUST GORGEOUS!!!!!
I have to look the other way and just power knit my old WIP's....at least I have 2 weeks to finish!




My BF is about ready to have a baby girl and she absolutely adores the chevron pattern.
Here is my progress of the Baby Missoni Inspired Blanket.
The colors and yarns are just fabulous! I am using Zara Plus by Filatura Di Crosa.
We stock just about every color.
It is such an exciting knit!
You can find the pattern on Ravelry. There is also a pattern available for a larger blanket which would look amazing in that special room in your house!

I did happen to finish the Baby Chalice Blanket for her which is a free pattern on Ravelry.
All blocked and ready for the arrival of a new baby GIRL!

Stay Tuned.......
