So, with no socks on the needles I have had plenty of time to work on my blanket. In the past week I have knit 25 squares and will be working on it most of this next week, too.
Susan Claudino released her Bonbon bunny pattern on March 1st. I had the honor of test knitting for her, The first sample I made was using some mystery (I think it's Opal) sock yarn that has been hiding in my stash for years. It's speckled and super teeny and adorable.
The second one I made was out of worsted weight. I needed a gift for a co-workers soon to be born baby girl. She saw me knitting the tiny bunny and asked me to knit her a bunny for Rowan. We were throwing her a surprise shower the next week, so I had the perfect opportunity to knit it for her. I used Gnome Acres House Gnome in Flamingo Fling.

I have another bitty bunny on the needles that I hope to share next week :)
Late last week, I FINALLY finished my Adrift cardigan. You know, the one I started LAST MAY. I blocked it aggressively and now it fits perfectly. It's the perfect sweater to wear in the office. Lightweight, but so warm and cozy.

Last week, I also finished up a pair of basic hand warmers. I used Chroma Fingering in the Regency colorway.
The last thing I have to share was technically finished back in January, but I finally blocked my coffee break Tubularity late last week. I still have to sew on the buttons, but I think I might re-block it first. It's a little snug when I wear it over my head. For now, it's going to sit in my hand knit basket until I decide what to do. I really enjoyed knitting it. It was very meditative. I just wish it fit me better. :(

Compared to Jess I look like a slacker! I finished up a baby blanket for a family member, and a little hat too but still need to take pictures when I have better light. I do have one FO to share though.

I did not test knit this little bunny, but cast on just as soon as the pattern was released! I love this bunny, and know that I will be making a lot more of these in the future. I need to make one in sock yarn like Jess because they turn out so tiny and cute!
