Finished up the “newborn” sized scrappy longies that I was making from Mosaic Moon Cestari scraps…
Turns out this yarn is a much thicker worsted weight than the Araucania I originally wrote the pattern up in, so this pair ended up being a whole size bigger. It’s not really a problem, as the babe will probably be in smalls for a lot longer than newborns. Mostly I just have to keep it in mind for when I’m writing the patterns.
And speaking of writing patterns, I just signed up several pattern testers for this longies pattern, so the ball is really rolling now!
I also just got started on the next size up – medium.
If you’re interested in being a pattern tester for this longies pattern comment on this post and I’ll get you all set up.

After much deliberation and soul searching (okay, maybe not soul searching) I have finally succumbed to the urge to jump on the band wagon and start doing “WIP Wednesdays”. For those of you who don’t know, “WIP” is an acronym for “work in progress”. So, with no further ado, here are some WIPs for today…
Flower Petal Shawl
(free pattern from Elann.com)
Two fish tails down… only ten more to go!
The Stash Buster Afghan
I started working on this afghan about 4 years ago when we lived in Boulder, Colorado… put it away for a LONG time and just got it out again.
I’m using all of my left over stash yarn (hence the name) on this one. Mostly it’s all worsted weight, single ply, but there are a few other random things thrown in here and there (some bulky single ply and some worsted multi-ply) .
It has gone in and out of the dresser several times over the last four years. Previously it has been my “movie watching project” and my “wine drinking project”, due to it’s super simple “k1, p1” pattern but most recently I took it out as something that I can work on while sitting in a mostly dark room waiting for my little one to fall asleep. I usually only get two or three rows done in a sitting, so this is still a very long term project!
