I spent hours working on a baby blanket made from "super bulky" Bernat Baby Blanket yarn, only to decide that the stitch pattern I was using was too "close knit" for that bulky yarn and the blanket was going to weigh a ton. So, it also unraveled and returned to the yarn stash. I'm still planning to make the blanket, but after I find a looser stitch.
My loom currently holds the first few rows of a shawl I'm making for myself from tweed-look yarn, in a basic pattern of knit and purl stitches. Hopefully there will be something to show on that next week.
Between knitting and un-knitting, I made one quilt block - yes, just one. The idea has been hanging around the back of my mind for ages and I finally got around to trying the 3-D Pinwheel block.
