Mary Jane Is A Star!

I finished my Pine Star hat. Mary Jane Mucklestone designed it, and, as usual, did a terrific job. It came out really lovely! I like the way the top decreases; very easy to knit it, and it is beautiful. 

Mary Jane is participating in a  new thing, Knit Stars, a thing that shows promise. It's a retreat with lots of cool designers and other fabulous people from around the world, and you can go without ever leaving your home. I think that is a great idea! Unfortunately Knit Stars for this year is closed, as demand caused it to fill up very quickly, but there is hope for the future years!

In other news, I got another foot of the blanket done; it is now three feet wide.

The rows are getting longer and the blanket is getting heavier and the temperatures are getting warmer. I noticed that it took me a lot longer time to get the third foot done than the other two, and there is still one more foot of width to knit before I start making it longer instead of wider .... but at least I won't be adding stitches to it! Onward and upward!

I knit two whole rows on my Line & Shadow shawl and loved it. Not worth a picture though. Maybe next time.
