Project Spectrum

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

I joined another -along. This time it's Project Spectrum. (click the image above to get a full run-down of what this is) Last year I wasn't organized enough to even try. This year, it's all different. I'm finishing projects!

So, Feb. and Mar. are the first two months. The colors are blue, white, and gray. I'm currently knitting a blue, white, and blue-gray pinwheel blanket:

Right now I have it scrunched up on a size 9, 32" circular.... I'm waiting till I get paid so I can buy a 60". Hopefully that will help a little. I only want to do another two inches in the solid blue (garter stitch), so I'm crossing my fingers it will fit on the 60". I can hardly move the stitches it's so tight. This blanket is for baby Andrew, my cousin's newborn. I had hoped to get it done before he was born, but I ran into that problem with the needle.

I'm not sure what my next blue/white/gray project will be. I might do some blue scrapbooking, that might be fun. Or, I have this blue and white self-striping sock yarn (regia nation something or other). It's for a costume I want to make for an anime convention. I don't plan on going to an conventions for another year, so I really don't need to start the socks, but it would be the perfect project for March. They are going to be knee-high, so I'm crossing my fingers that I have enough. (the yarn is pictured below)

Another project I've been thinking about is a cookie monster hat. Check out this yarn:

That blue fluffy stuff? Wouldn't it be perfect for a cookie monster hat? And then all I'd need to do is add some eyes. It's exciting.

Oh, I also made a PS set on flickr of all my pictures that are mainly blue/white/gray.
