Things have been a little bit crazy since I started working at Ravelry (look here if you don't know what I'm talking about). For a bit, this is on top of several other responsibilities that I had prior to accepting the job, making life a bit hectic, but it is SO worth it! Add to that a family emergency that took me out of state, and things have been busy.
In the midst of all of this, I started and frogged and started and frogged an Aphrodite (Ravelry link). It's not the pattern's fault! I just think I've had too many other things going on which have led to distracted knitting which equals mistakes! I will revisit it, probably sooner rather than later. I adore the knitting with beads method that Sivia Harding incorporated into this pattern, they look so great as a part of the shawl!
For now, I've cast on something simple which has come in handy for knitting while the kiddo is awake or while hanging out with friends! A pinwheel blanket.
I have some green for the border and I think I might make a ruffled edge since it is a baby blanket for a little girl, but we'll see how I feel about that when I get there. After knitting on itty bitty needles for a little while, I've been amazed at how quickly this is knitting up! It should be perfect for our upcoming road trip, if I don't finish it before then!
