Fall FO's!

My glorious, super-bright picnic blanket is done!

It's about 5' x 7', uses lots and lots of scraps, and is pleasingly puckered just like a well-loved heirloom. It has snaps to roll it up for toting to picnic locations and rock pockets to weight it down:

I've already used it once and am mightily pleased with myself. And what's this little lump sitting atop my picnic blanket?

Ah, yes, knitting. I've missed you, old friend.

Oh, and in other news, here's a lovely photo of the recipient of the "Sock Yarn Stranded" prototype, looking all cute and cuddly in her sweater:

I see lots of pills on those elbows. Hope that's from hard use!

What a beautiful quilt!

I also came to thank you for the beautiful Baby Sheep Yoke Cardi pattern you designed! I offered the one I've knitted recently and the parents thought it was absolutely beautiful for a little baby boy! I do too ;-) Thank you very much!

Gorgeous quilt! The colors are so vibrant yet harmonious.

That little sweater is so sweet.

I love your FOs. I am hoping that you might blog about how you manage to store the supplies for your crafts in an apartment. I live in a roomy house with two kids, and feel like I can't get into sewing b/c I don't have an area for it. I would love to know how you do it.
