Silk Garden Sock Log Cabin Blanket

I am working on a crochet log cabin blanket in Silk Garden Sock.. So far, so good!  The colours look great and the crocheting is easy. Above are 2 blocks folded up and stacked. 

Otherwise, I've been busy with work, interweb stuff. I will try and produce for so you can see more! :-

Open Cardigan

I finished my Open Cardigan last weekend, pockets and all!  It was really a runaway project, I started it as a little spring/summer thing but it had a will of it's own so I went with it (I guess it wanted to be something else).  The Araucania Patagonia (cotton) was great to work with, but I already knew that. It has a lot of drape so I was able too make a smaller size.

You may be surprised to know that this was the first time I have ever made pockets. Yup, I popped my pocket cherry. I wasn't avoiding them, it just never came up. They were easy, especially working top-down.  Although, I would categorize them in the realm of 'finishing' - I took my time with them to make sure they looked good. You can make it without pockets, I just thought it would be a nice thing in a big, comfy cardigan.

I am writing up the pattern, it'll be available soon. I want to double check the math, and I have to put in the pocket instructions.

Freebie Stitch Diva Cardie

crazy lace cropped cardi
I came across this great freebie this morning! Well, actually, it was in my inbox, so it is not really a skilled find. Anyway, it's a great little spring top!
