Last First Day of School | Project Inspiration
This week I celebrated my last first day of school! My last first day with me as the student, anyway. Hopefully at this time next year I will be celebrating my first- first day of me as the teacher! *crosses fingers* *curses budget cuts*
Gettiing adjusted to yet another new routine calls for some brain-numbing garter stitch. My latest project:
This log cabin baby afghan is knitted with unravelled sweaters. The preppy stripes make it a little more “Baby Gap” than “hippie handicraft” which will make it a great gift for one of my many expecting friends. It was really fun to knit in the beginning when the squares were small, but now I am knitting in solid blocks for a very long time. Quite boring. I am excited to try an applied I-cord edge on the blanket which is new to me.
My mind is obviously craving something more exciting. While knitting this afghan I spaced out to Rachel Zoe Project on Bravo. I really like this hat and think it could easily be duplicated.
Later in the week I was out for coffee with a friend and was distracted by the tapestry pattern on our booth. Would this not make an awesome Kona-cotton mod-quilt design?
I better get plugging away on that baby afghan so I can start a new project! My latest audiobook pick will keep my brain occupied. I’m listening to A Prayer for Owen Meany which is 25 hours long!
