Honeycomb Shenanigans

So, my great friend and cousin is expecting her first. She's already seen what I'm working on, so it's no big surprise.
I chose the Honeycomb Baby Blanket . It was kind of a confusing start for me, as the pictures I found of it I couldn't really tell what was the main color that travels through the blanket. I had to re-start a few times to get the right color scheme I planned. I'm using Knit Picks Comfy Sport, since it's a nice soft cotton blend.




I do love the result so far. Looks a lot more complicated than it actually is, but I do not particularly like how the pattern is written...Anyway, that's what I've been working on.

Oh, this too. It's mid row, so it looks kind of like a mess, but it's another Springtime Bandit.


So perhaps I'll finish this one after the blanket. I have to figure out what border I'm going to do for the blanket. I'm going to have to *gulp* sew fabric onto the back. I haven't sewn since...uh....since....well...I made a pillow in 6th grade. It was kind of ... well. Interesting. Interesting meaning slightly crooked and basically busted. And totally 90's. (If that's possible?)

Anyway, that's all for now. Home sick, going back to work on the blanket and watching some Melrose Place. Amanda and Dr. Peter Burns are having a very romantic dinner. I'm pretty sure someone's going to end up dead by the end of the episode. Oh, and Alison's 7000 year old secretive husband just woke her up in the middle of the night to go on a second honeymoon on their yacht. This show is great. Hey! I was right! Jake's girlfriend is about to kill him!
