What I've been doing. . .

2 Baby Bib o'love, 2 4-hr bias baby afghans & 1 (50% done) feather & fan scarf.
Now, I need your input. The pinkish 4 hr baby afghan is giving me fits. I'm using LB homespun & of course, am running out of 1 color way before the other 3.
Do I:
a) Frog back to a point where I can start my decreases (before the point the pattern says to do so) & then finish
b) just buy more yarn & finish it as normal.
On a sad note, our AC Moore is closing & we will be getting JoAnn's. I loved AC Moore--box store yarn & all. When I started knitting again in Nov. 04 I bought my needles & yarn (baby teri) there. I had found the cutest baby hat pattern in a baby magazine (or pregnancy, I cant remember) & copied it. My plan was to have MIL or my Mom (from whom I learned how to knit!) make the hat. The more I read it the more I realized that I could make that hat myself. It was a striped hat in pinke & green & absolutely adorable. It came out less than perfect but cute enough that a couple girls in the MOMS club asked me to make hats for their wee ones!
So AC Moore, I shall miss you!

Sorry about your AC Moore. I like it better than JoAnn's.
Better selection of yarn.
For the blanket I would add the other skein. You could make a cute pair of booties and/or hat with the leftover to match the blanket.
Love all your FO - you have been very productive!

Go on with your bad knit self! And small world huh? :D Paris looks like it was great and the Wee One looks thrilled to death with her princesses. Hope to see you again tonight at SnB.
