Another FO and some UFOs too

Wow, it's been a while since I posted last. Things have been busy!

I did finish another project a while ago, in early September that I never posted about. My two-at-a-time-toe-up-magic-loop socks! They were quite easy, and now that they are done they are quite warm. I liked the two at a time method, as it did get rid of second sock syndrome. However, it also made progress a lot slower than normal.I've started quite a few projects since completing my double v cardigan as well.

1) Geodesic Cardigan - this cardigan is from Knitscene Winter/Spring 2010 by Connie Chang Chinchio. I think it's super cute. I'm making it in Knit Picks Shadow in the Soot colour. It's going to be really nice. I worked on it while traveling this summer, and made it about half way up the body, then it got put on the back burner for a while.

2) Triinu Scarf - from Knitted Lace of Estonia by Nancy Bush.I started this with my Diamond Yarn Luxury Baby Alpaca, and it looks lovely, but it is VERY fine yarn, and VERY detailed lace and when I started it, I was traveling a lot, and did not have the patience or ability to do it on the road. So it got put on a stitch holder and has remained there ever since.

So that brings me to my current project, which I am trying very hard to complete!

3) Petal Blanket - from Comfort Knitting and Crochet Afghans by Norah Gaughan.There are 36 squares to knit - so far I have completed 12. It took me two months to do that so I don't think I'll finish by the end of November like I planned! Here is a picture of one square.
I am making it using Knit Picks Comfy Worsted in HoneyDew. It's such a cute colour. And so soft! I think it will turn out nice, but probably not before the baby it is meant for is born. After all, in order to get all those 36 squares together, I still have to learn to crochet!!!
