Layla pattern, but with a few additional modifications from the last two versions. This one is for my friend Kristy, who is one of my oldest friends (we've known each other since, oh, kindergarten) and is getting married in October to a mutual college friend that she reconnected with last year. Since she's been living on her own for awhile, unlike the last two brides I made aprons for, there wasn't really a whole lot of stuff on her registry to pick from. So I made the apron to supplement something for the kitchen that I picked off of her registry.
I still have a little less than a yard left of the cherry fabric, so if I have time this week, I'd like to make her some matching potholders or something. The shower's on Saturday, so I'm on a bit of a time crunch. We'll see how it goes.
I also got some knitting done over the weekend-- went back to my aunt's beach house for a night to hang out with my brother and sis-in-law for her birthday, and I brought my knitting with me. So I've got about 50 rows of mindless knit 2 purl 2 left before the back is done. I'm hoping I can knock that out pretty quickly! Especially since I already have my next big project lined up-- I'm joining in the Newbie and the Knitter knitalong that's starting up in September. I mean, what better way to figure out that sweater knitting thing than with other people, right? The planned project is the Cadence pullover from Knitty.com. I'm personally planning on lengthening the sleeves to full-length if I can, because I get cold so easily that 3/4 sleeved sweaters are kind of pointless for me. And I guess I got excited, because I ended up getting my yarn for it yesterday while I was at Joann's to get a better matching thread for the apron (and that Vogue pattern I wanted!)
