Here's why I joined SOS. (If you're standing, you may want to take a seat.)
Yes, this is our master bathroom garden tub, and that's not even all of it. The rest had to be stacked on the floor.
Hence the 50 FO summer. I already have FO #2- another Critter Knitter blanket.
Plus, the first sleeve on Harry is done.
The temptations are already here; Knit Happens is having a Rowan sale this week.

Here's blanket number one
as well as another Harry piece.
One FO down, forty-nine to go.

Charlotte also wants to learn how to knit, so we started out with a knitting machine from Michaels. Depending on the setting, it can knit circularly or flat, so for Charlotte's first project we made a shrug.

This sweater was from Miss Bea's Rainy Day and took 5 balls of Orkney ASC.
Here's Joshua attempting the model's pose.

This took just over 6 skeins of Artyarns Supermerino in color #111. (In case you are curious, I ended up with a very happy solution to my Bookworm problem. More on that next post.)
