Progressing

Knitting time this weekend was fruitful, if minimal. I did make progress on the F13 Resolution projects and I didn't start anything knew so the weekend was a success. (I have low-ish standards for a good weekend.)

I finished Lori's Sophie bag. See? There's the lining peeking out of the top.
And here is a look inside.

I finished the first row of the Almost Amish baby blanket (pictured) and I finished the first 4 blocks of row two, though I didn't take a picture of it.I have decided to only go 8 squares wide instead of 9.

Beautiful bag and beautiful blanket-in-progress! I love your color choices ... will you be my official color consultant? I am so bad at picking out matching, fun, colors ...

I am so excited! I hope you have stashed in your desk somewhere and you are going to let me have it today!?!?!?

Beautiful bag! I like the blanket - as a quilter, I love the idea of quilt-inspired knitting!

I love the bag Kristy, it's very reminiscent of lilacs. The baby blanket's looking good too :)

I agree with Ruth - love the knitted quilt idea! And yay you for making a very cool resolution. Here's to Friday the 13ths!

I love the bag and the blanket. The color choices are wonderful. I especially like that you didn't go for the traditional baby pastels.
