The purple baby blanket is coming along nicely, I have almost finished the first skein of yarn, and may only need one more since I am making this one car seat sized, not full swaddling sized. I love the pattern so much I may be making another in some soft and fluffy red/black chunky yarn that is sitting in my stash.
I also managed to get two sewing projects done this morning. I can't say too much about them since they are gifts, but they both worked up much quicker than I had expected, so that was a pleasant surprise. I will snap some photos of the blanket progress soon.
