Wednesday Yarn Along

Happy Wednesday!
I have officially hit my third trimester with this baby and I forgot how
exhausting it is! So....I've been doing a lot of sitting and knitting this week.
I decided that the baby has enough fall sweaters for now so on to some knitting for myself.
After a wonderful trip to the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival,
I just HAD to get some new projects casted on this week. Have I mentioned that I love knitting?

Mother's Day morning...
Casted on with some chunky yarn on chunky needles for a quick and squishy cowl.
I loved doing this cowl. I need to find more of this yarn pronto and get started on some more.
It's inspired by the Gaptastic Cowl on Ravelry but I did make some modifications on it.

Finished Cowl
Button is from Melissa Jean (purchased at the sheep and wool festival) Fun!

Just casted on to make the Peasy Sweater from Ravelry
Working with a merino superwash I bought at the Festival
Directions are a little wonky on this, but I'm following them ok. Just need to remind myself to take my time and concentrate. (I'm not very good at doing that)

The baby blanket continues....
I have two months to complete it. I WILL! Ugh. It's getting boring.

I also want to give a shot out to my fabulous husband for buying me a new WONDERFUL camera of my own for Mother's Day/Birthday. Thanks babe! Now my pictures will look sooooo much better on here. I LOVE it.

Hope you are all having a great day. Enjoy this beautiful spring weather!

Happy Knitting
