Have you guys checked out Botanical Knits 2 by Alana Dakos yet?  It’s full of so many pretty patterns!  Pictured above:

Ivy Trellis hat

Flourish sweater

Forest Foliage wrap

Sprig Sweater

Ferns hat

Hanging Leaves wrap

Aren’t they all lovely?  There are a few more (equally beautiful) patterns in the collection as well.


Hexipuff Sunday number 35 with 550 hexipuffs.
One year of progress and still no blanket -sobs hysterically- Although my blanket doubled in puff number.

35 weeks of progress and 17 weeks of break/other projects. 
550 puffs over the 35 weeks of progress is 2.24 hexipuffs a day, but over the year makes it 1.5 a day.
Also I’m 61.2% done my blanket (minus sewing).
I was hoping to be at 600 puffs (slightly unrealistic goal) but then I had the needles debacle.

Hopefully by this time next year I’ll be done it!
