A month in yarn: May 2015

I'm not totally sure what has happened to the first nine days of June, they seem to have disappeared! We've had a poorly household, car troubles, and a short holiday, so my poor blog has been neglected. So I'm going to attempt to get back on track, starting with my monthly summary of May's yarny things.
Toe-up socks from my first hand-dyed yarn.
Beyond Puerperium 1 and 2
Two baby cardigans in crazy colours; two rounds of yardage chicken! I love them both.

Knitbot blanket
I feel like I've been working on this for a while, but here it is, the finished Knitbot blanket. The recipient loves it as much as I do. I'll tell you more about it in the next week or two.
My first ever pair of non-vanilla socks, and my first every mystery KAL. Lots of fun.

On the needles
An excellent pick-up and put-down knit. So easy to memorise, and a great use for variegated yarn.

Hermione's Everyday Socks
Such a popular pattern. I'm knitting them in some of the yarn I got for my birthday.

Dinosaur blanket
Whale blanket
