Vacation State of Mind: Knit Progress

071113_pinwheels_1

We got back from our yearly trip to the beach, but I find I’m still in a vacation state of mind – I’m not quite ready to tackle my next knitting design project. So instead, I’ve been using up all of my little scrappy bits of yarn left over from projects to create little pinwheel pieces that will someday become a patchwork afghan. If you’ve read this blog before, you may remember this project from last summer.

I ended up using the pieces I knit then to create a piece to donate to the Marietta/Cobb Museum of Art yarn bomb installation, which is currently on display and will be up until September. I really liked how that piece turned out, so I decided to give it another shot and am building up a stash of knit pieces while depleting my stash of odds & ends yarn. A win-win!

I finished another pair of Cadence socks on vacation, too. Pictured below, the pattern is great and I love the color. I’ll keep going on the pinwheels for a while longer, then it will be back to the design drawing board.
