Progress (It's a Miracle!)

A few months ago, I posted my very first pattern for a baby blanket I made for a friend. Guys, it's gotten such a great reaction! I'm so happy and flattered and excited and I'm giddy every time I see someone post a picture of their progress on Ravelry or Instagram. I don't even have the adequate words. Ahhhhhhhh!!

I've been getting lots of questions and comments and, though I've done my best to answer all of them, I know I can only be super accurate if I knit up another blanket following the pattern and fix any mistakes I may have made. So, ta-dah!, I have FINALLY gotten around to starting another blanket. Here's proof:
I like to match my knitting to my nail polish - don't you?

Yes, the color was inspired by my nail polish. What? I like mint and orange!

Sucker for Packaging

Did I buy this blush solely because it looks like knitted fabric?
Physicians Formula Cashmere Wear Ultra-Smoothing Blush - Rose
Yeah, pretty much.

Luckily, it's actually pretty good! Nicely pigmented and only the tiny, tiniest bit of shimmer (I'm not a fan of shimmery blushes). Nicely done for an impulse buy!
