Float stole: The final chapter

I did end up frogging the stole :-( I felt just terrible about it.

But I did take up the suggestion to work on smaller lace patterns. I ordered some US 4 16-inch circular needles and US 8 16-inch circular needles from knitpicks because there was just no way I was going to try and do lace on DPNs. I have some patterns in mind

Haven't decided yet. Think they are all nice though.

Feather and Fan blanket

A couple weeks ago I cast on for a blanket. Had no idea what I wanted but said "what the heck" and looked up the feather and fan stitch pattern. It's such an easy pattern to memorize and just pick up and go with. Each row takes me not much time and I manage to do at least a couple repeats an evening. I decided to go with stripes and I'm pretty pleased with it so far.

It's Lion Brand hometown yarn and Red Heart Craft yarn. I'm quite impressed with how nice the Red Heart feels. Not as soft and the Lion Brand (and that stuff feels pretty snuggly).

I think this will be perfect for curling up on the couch with.
