Updates, updates! Read all about it!

The first baby blanket is officially finished, with the second well underway (see second photo!) I'm not sure I like the reverse rainbow as much as the regular one, but I'll wait until it's finished to see how it looks. These blankets have gone insanely fast, using this basic pattern with some corrections. I've also posted a listing on etsy, to see if there's any interest for them! The babies aren't due for a while, and these work up so quickly that I'd love to make a few more. . . especially considering the insanely complicated knitting projects I'm contemplating for the holidays!

I've also completed my first real bit of spinning (yikes!), and it looks a little sad. . . but I'm hopeful. Jen assures me that I'm doing great, and since she CAN spin, I'm inclined to believe her! I've signed up for a class at her shop, Tempe Yarn and Fiber, set to begin next week. Wish me luck!
Last but certainly not least. . . a teaser trailer of Hannah's birthday gift! Whatever could it be??? Knitting updates to follow!

The baby blankets look awesome! I think the second will be just as fabulous as the first. I won't let you quit spinning 'til you get the rhythm. Once you got that, if you don't like it, I'll let you quit. Hehe! what could those cute heathered cables be... hmm...

Beautiful job on the blanket, as usual! You always do such lovely work. I'm sure the babies will love them.

You'll get the hang of spinning. I've never tried it but it seems like something that requires a bit of practice. I look forward to seeing your yarn creations.
