The Knitting Factory Is Open

I knit up this car seat blanket so fast, I amazed myself! Of course it is only about 24"x31" - but still, you know how slow I go on blankets in the summer...

I used Mason Dixon's Moderne Baby Blanket but cast on fewer stitches and added a few more strips.
This will be for Little Lissie - matches her little hat :)
Yarn is Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn.

I like to clean up my craft room when I go away, so I tend to shove all the WIPs here and there - out of sight. Now that I am back, I am having fun searching for them because I forgot where the heck I hid them!

Found the Telemark Sweater and finished it in no time. This one is destined for the Rez for the coming winter.

Pattern: Telemark Sweater (Free Ravelry Download)
Needles: #7's
Yarn: Thrift Shop

Now to hunt around for more FO's and those mittens I left to be finished.
Yes, I am back to knitting even more mittens! Maybe I can reach 100 pairs before the end of Sept? Nahhhh...... not even if I knit in my sleep :)
