FO Friday: A Bit Of Catching Up To Do

I was busy during my Advent/Christmas hiatus. Before I get to that, though, I want to pretend it’s WIP Wednesday and post part of what I was going to post then. For some reason, my tablet (I’m computerless) would not load the draft page, and I was unable unable to post or link up to the Yarn Along. No matter. I shall do that now.

So, here’s what I’m knitting and reading:

The Book: I was still reading The Slow Regard of Silent Things by Patrick Rothfuss. In fact, I finished it last night at work. Auri is a fascinating character. Enigmatic and sweet. Broken and wise…of what and by what I still do not understand, even after spending 159 pages seeing through her eyes. I may need to dive deeper into her beloved world for a second time.

The NeedlesI’m knitting my second Beyond Puerperium cardigan in two months. I love this pattern. The buttons along the raglan increase line are a fun and lovely detail. The recipient of this cardigan hasn’t made his or her grand entrance yet, thus the green yarn. I suppose I could have picked a different color, but I already had this one in my stash. I’m not sure, but I think I want to do shell or wooden buttons.

Okay, on to the finished things!

I alluded to having knit a first Beyond Puerperium cardigan, and indeed I did. A friend of mine had a baby boy in December, and I knit him this cardigan.

My friend lives in SoCal, so I made this one short sleeved. I finished it in early January, just in time to deliver it in person.  🙂

Of course, I had to knit a blanket, too. I turned to my favorite blanket pattern and knocked out this pinwheel blanket. I knit it on the plane and all the way through the Hobbit, but I got it done. The color is more accurate in the second photo.
