The Penrose and a Scarf Design with Hidden Pockets!

In small time, but still super fun knitting accomplishments, I finished this blanket finally:

Does anyone know have any advice on how much Cascade 220 Superwash pills? Any solutions, besides a crazy amount of gleening and a more patient perspective?

I was also super excited that the designer, Woolly Thoughts, asked to use my project photo on her Ravelry Penrose pattern page. Of course she can! She also designed this nifty organ transplant scarf, which obviously is a cause close to my heart. Mark your calendar – there will be a sale this weekend September 30th-October 1st on her patterns. 31% off to celebrate her 31 year transplantiversary!

I currently have internet crushes on:

DWJ’s blog, This blog is full of beautiful bright sweater photos, and dogs. Seriously, what more could I possibly ask for?

Anything OliphanKat designs I’m loving! Check out her beautiful tank top design Lorraine’s Lace.

PSA: There are hidden pockets in this scarf design. I repeat, HIDDEN POCKETS. How amazing would this be for your upcoming holiday travel?
