    Thanks for the tips. How exciting to hear my questions!

    I think the videos on socks will get me through. When I read the patterns, I just can’t picture what I’ll be doing.

    As for baby projects, I have started making the Lavish Booties for a few new baby girls in my life. I have substituted Vanna’s Glamour Onyx. I am using a smaller needle than the pattern calls for, so I need to use the bigger size on the pattern. When I actually give them as gifts, I’ll pair them with some cute socks.

    Now I need a cute pattern for baby boys?

    Oooh, I love that Spring Essential Top and I really like the recycled cotton. As soon as I finish up my summertime UFOs from last year that one is going in my queue!

    Great episode with many ideas for spring. I love the Knit Ruffle Shrug, the Waterlily Shawl and the Knit Spring Essential Top. Can’t wait to pick up my yarn and needles for these projects!

    Totally love the episode…I am actually working on a baby blanket for spring as well. I am using 3 colors of the Lionbrand’s Pound of Love: Pastel Pink, Antique White and Lavender. I am making granny squares of each and crocheting them together. Cant wait to see pictures of everyone’s baby projects!

    Hey girls!

    I am expecting a girl in May and one of my new year’s resolutions was to try and make 1 project a month until she arrived. Luckily, I finished my resolution early! I’ve made her a plethora of bibs, a beanie made out of cotton ease in taupe, the bunny blanket in recycled cotton sage, a travel blanket, and a sweater made with wool ease in seaspray. You can check out my blog under January and February to see the projects or I’m under Fromage in Ravlery!

    I love your show and get excited when new episodes come out! Keep up the great work ladies!
