The Lover's Knot Afghan & Other Ideas

I have gotten reacquainted with the Lover's Knot Afghan that I had started awhile ago.  The trouble with afghans....it's hard to show any real progress from week to week.


I had an opportunity to go with another crafting buddy and shop some craft/yarn stores today.

I picked up some Vanna White baby yarn in white.  I already have baby blue yarn.  I also picked up Baby Washcloths to Knit by Leisure Arts, so I thinking about knitting up some of this squares and sewing into a baby blanket.


 


I'd also like to have another try at the Elizabeth Zimmermann's Baby Surprise Jacket , but I haven't decided what to do yet.

Yes, Sometimes I Will Knit Anything

I'm between knitting projects.  I almost finished the white baby jacket except, for sewing up the arm seams and putting the buttons on.

I wasn't in the mood to work on my socks: 


or my green pullover sweater


or an afghan that I started a while ago.  



So, I was on the hunt for something to knit and it had to be a quick knit.

A couple of years ago, I knitted a pumpkin toilet paper cover, much to the chagrin of my kids.  



The last year, I made another one in Christmas colors, 



but since I can't use the pumpkin or the Christmas ones all year round, I decided to knit one in blue and white ...the colors in my bathroom.

This is the Ball Band Toilet Paper Cover .  I've made several Textured Slip Stitch Dishcloths, so I've been wanting to knit this for awhile.

The details:
Size 7 Denise Interchangeable Cir & Size 7 DPNs from my Mom's stash. (Thanks Mom.)

Blue and White yarns from my stash.

Completed in 2 evenings.


Thanks to Hakucho  for the fun knit.
