Baby Blanket Square #2

I finished the new baby blanket square.  A co-worker in my department is expecting a baby boy.  I hadn’t even considered the baby blanket, even though we did one less than a year ago for Sarah, my other co-worker. But one of the women in the office mentioned it to me, and I happened to have enough time to jump in and make a square.

The woman putting it together, Tina, decided to select a pattern to inspire our baby blanket rather than everyone do a random design.  Last time, we all chose our own designs and it looked great.  So this is trying something new.  The pattern is pretty straight forward.  I finished it on Thursday.  Here’s the image.

It was supposed to be 8″x8″, but I ended up running out of yarn, so it’s slightly less than 8″x8″, but once it’s attached to the rest of the squares it will be just right!

Busy, Busy, Busy

I have quite a few knitting tasks ahead of me!

A few people have asked for some things and others I’m making as gifts…I need to keep a list so I don’t forget anyone.  What better place than here, my knitting project “tracker”?

Miscellaneous
9″x9″ squares for the Pine Street Inn Annual Knit-a-Thon (I’ll explain more about this later)
** [Edit 23-Nov-11] I was unable to complete these by the Knit-a-Thon, so I will save them for next year… I will blog about this later, I have an idea brewing…

There are also some other really cute patterns that I’ve lined up in my queue on Ravelry, but this list is requested items that I want to make and so I will concentrate on these first!
