I was taking stock of knitting accessories and I almost freaked out when I saw how many stitch markers I have. YIKES!! Do I really need them all? I have my favorites that I use for most everything I knit. They fit up to size 5mm needles, which is in the range of most of my knitting projects. I suppose there's a possibility that the others might come in handy. I'll take a 'wait and see' attitude on this one.

I started another basketweave baby blankie after finishing a small one (about 24" square). The second one will be larger because I'm using a double strand of yarn and larger needles. It should be about 36" x 24" when done, a good size for a little one.

This is a sleeve for a ribbed v-neck pullover that I'm attempting. This sleeve was easy so I've started the other sleeve instead of starting the body. I'm still a little hesitant about this pattern so I might end up changing a few details. I've never knit anything from Garn Studio so I'm a little skeptical.
You see the lace cuff? That stitch is not in the original pattern. I found a nice lace design in a book of knitting stitches that I decided to use instead. You see, I've already changed it to my own taste.

Your Sleeve is beautiful!!! And yes I would use the same attitude when it came to stitch markers(never know when your going to lose one somewhere...).
