  1. I feel much better now--I have so many unfinished knitting and crochet projects, but still start new ones. I love the Jelly Bean Socks--beautiful color. I've been thinking of doing a cowl, but haven't found the right pattern yet. I really enjoy your blog, Stephanie.

  2. Becky, are you on Ravelry? There are hundreds of beautiful cowl patterns! If you join, friend me, lonestarknits is my rav name! Thank you for reading - and commenting!


  3. I love all the colors in the first photo. That bonnet pattern was what sold me on that knitting book...isn't it darling? And I LOVE that blue for the bonnet...your friend has good taste in colors.

  4. omg I love this topic! I'm feeling knit overwhelmed this month too! There is a list a dozen projects long for "Dream" knits ( I even bought the yarn. I just never get to it!) and 5 or 6 UFO's on needles. *sigh* I wish they sold pre-knit sleeves so I could work the bodies of sweaters (the fun decorative part) and then just attach the pre-knit sleeves! haha
