Pinwheel done

I know I haven't posted lately. That is so not like me. This is what I have been up to lately:

Knitting-wise, I've mainly been working on the pinwheel blanket, and I finally managed to finish it last night! It looks great, and I'm really happy with it. I know Amanda will love it. Here it is, freshly washed and softer than ever:

I also realized last week that my gauge was way off on my Twist & Shout and that I would have to start over on smaller needles. I finally restarted that last night, but I've only knit 2 rows so far, haha. The pattern calls for size 9 needles, and I ended up going down to a size 6! The gauge is better, and I figured since it's such a stretchy sweater it won't matter that much if it's a little smaller than the pattern. I guess that's really all I have to report, which is why I haven't posted lately! That, and Alex was on vacation and not harassing me to do a new post :P

Oh, and speaking of Alex, she is coming over this weekend to dye yarn! Yay, I'm excited. I'm all ready:

Hahahaha. No, I don't intend to dye all that yarn this weekend, but it's good to be prepared, ha. I will be dyeing a skein of sock yarn for Katie too!
