Where have I been?

Well, I have not posted for a very long time. I have since started a great job and I am now married. (Of course, the man who gives you a knitting related necklace is a keeper!)

I have completed some projects since then and my husband took my favorite slouchy beret. I have a ridiculous amount of projects going right now, since I am off for the summer. I will post the projects as I finish, but here are links to the projects:

Elf Hat: I am making it in a heathered pink and scarlet.
Elf Hat
Update: This is my adorable husband modeling my hat for me. He wants it now. He always wants the finished projects! (I have started making everything in "girl colors" in the hopes he will be less likely to covet it.)

Baby Blanket in Minty Blue: It is just a knit and purl basket weave pattern. I kinda of winging this one.
Update: The baby blanket is complete. Now we await the baby.

I am making generic cotton wash cloths for my kitchen and bathroom. You have to love $1.98 Sugar and Cream Yarn! I am also trying to come up with my own version of "tea panties." I put examples below. I am thinking of crocheting a version that is adjustable with funky buttons. We'll see how it turns out. I do not yet know how to write crochet patterns, but I will do my best to describe it. Here is a felted version:
Tea Panties
Update: Tea Panties were a disaster.

I was definitely caught off guard by "tea panties" ... I don't think I've heard of that one before. Interesting though.

I want to learn how to make the washcloths. I have one that my exhusband's grandmother made for us YEARS ago and it's the best washcloth ever.

Enjoy your yarn-filled summer :)
