The scrappy garter stitch blanket is coming along. I've greatly reduced my worsted weight ends stash. Since I last checked in, I've added the following to the blanket: Knit Picks Wool of the Andes in Baltic Heather, Shire Heather and Brass Heather colorways, Knitpicks Wool of the Andes Superwash in Columbine, Knitpicks Wool of the Andes Tweed in Prussian Heather, two natural wool balls my brother had given me, Vista MountainTop in the Peat, Seal and Wolf colorways, Bluemoon Gaea in Corbie, Quince and Co. Lark in Egret, Tess's Designer Yarns Superwash Merino in Midnight Blue and Ocean Storm, and the Fibre Company Canopy in Yerba Mate.
I've also cast on these Traveling Stitch Legwarmers, by Lisa R. Myers, using the Knit Picks Stroll Tweed in Downy Heather that I recently frogged from some knees highs I'd made and only worn once. This is the kind of pattern I probably should have started with - it's more fitted, and hopefully something I'll actually feel like wearing.
