Summertime, and the knitting is easy

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.

With a little guy's foot for scale.  He wanted to "help". 

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!
