I finished up the Dream Stripes Prayer Shawl with more than a week to spare before the next meeting of the group. I still have another skein of the white yarn left, and since this worked up so quickly, I will get some more in a contrasting color and make another one for the next meeting.
I really like this pattern and may have to make one of these for myself later this year.
Amanda talked me into joining a dishcloth group on Ravelry and I made one of their patterns. I've had this pattern in my library for awhile, but never got around to making it. I was originally going to make a scarf with it, but it does work up quite nicely for a hot pad.
More fun craftiness from Pinterest! I used pages from a knitting catalog to make a woven coaster. Too lazy right now to track down the tutorial url, but I will do that another day. This took mere minutes to make and was a pretty mindless project. I will be making more of these to store around the house.
I started a baby blanket for my hairstylist, who is expecting her second this July. I have wanted to make this pattern since I bought the magazine back in 2008, but didn't think about it when she had her first 2 years ago. It is working up fairly quickly (when I actually work on it), and I'm hoping to have it all completed by the end of March.
