This is me in Chicago working on the BSJ I showed you.
And then more recently a friend of mine (who just started knitting) did a knit-a-long with me. We each made a calorimetry (which is probably why the upswing in temps to the 80's has come around). I made mine in a little over a day. I really enjoyed it this time (I think the first time I made one I was pretty new to knitting and concerned about what I was doing and if I was doing it right etc...this time I just really enjoyed it).
And I loved the yarn I used (although I can't tell you what it was b/c it came wound from Jimmy Beans and I have no idea what I did with the ball band). But, I love the yarn and colorways so much that I decided to try another old standby Knitty pattern - Fetchings - with the rest of the yarn. Those are also going pretty quickly (and I am enjoying them more the second time as well). I think when you get in a knitting funk it might be a good idea to go to Ravelry and see what 10,800 other people have knit already (BSJ, Caliometry, Fetchings) and knit them - they promise to be quick and easy and make you happy (otherwise 10,800 people are wrong!)
And I will leave you with some more baby love (in a handknit). I took these of Drew in his pod while we were in Chicago.
