I like the fabric it made, I just don't know yet what I'll make with it, maybe a bag. Meanwhile I've also cast on for a One Row blanket (k2, k1tbl, p1 and repeat those stitches to the end, turn and repeat) and a pair of socks. The blanket is to use up yarn I was given and I'd like the giver to see what I'm making. The socks were promised last winter to my DS. I think I'm going to have to get a book on mosaic knitting I'm finding it hard to run down the stuff I want online. I'll check the library first.
My Goodness! You are one busy little bee I like the stitch for the blanket - how wide do you think it'll end up being? Have you knitted many socks? What yarns are you using in these projects?

In Judy's post for her Mosaic Crib Blanket she had mentioned using patterns from Barbara Walker's book. You can probably order that from your library, may take a few weeks to get it. I so wish I had looked at that book when I was at my Santa Fe LYS, but the owner discouraged me, said I wouldn’t be interested in it, so I didn’t give it a second thought. I never realized that mosaic knitting was slip stitch knitting, always thought it was stranded work.

That jacket is so beautiful I'm almost finished with my circle cloth, was so tired last night kept falling asleep with my knitting in my lap I promised a pair of socks for our friend that we stayed with while we were in Santa Fe, the yarn arrives in the next couple of days.

I really wanted to try out that Linen Stitch, lengthwise on a scarf, at least get it cast on before the sock yarn arrives. I have just the yarn for it, Peaches & Crème Ivy League Still working through the cotton worsted stash.

We need an emoticon for juggling We hired a painter to finish up the house, starting to pack, interviewed another R.E. Agent today, we like her. We rented a storage unit today for boxes and a couple of oddball things. And we're sleeping in the living room until the upstairs is painted. Idk what I like about that, but I do.
