Crocheting, Knitting, Tunisian WIPs

I finished the Fat Bottom Bag yesterday. I started a new swatch in knitting, it's a diagonal stitch baby blanket in garter stitch. It's got a work as you go border, I love this. I really like the look of the borders, and love that when you're finished with the afghan, you're finished. You don't have the then add a border, "working stitches evenly down the sides of the rows". That's one of the things that I like least in crochet. Anyway, I'm tempted to keep working on this swatch, as it's cute, stretchy, and springy in color. But,...it's lime green, and I don't have enough to make it into a baby blanket or even a triangular prayer shawl. So I guess I'll have to pull it out, and then possibly start a blanket in a yarn that I have plenty of, in the stash.
While searching through the stash I came across a diagonal stitch baby afghan that I was working in Tunisian, with a work as you go border. And it's looking pretty good! So tonight I worked more on this afghan. It will be nice to finish up this WIP and use up some of the stash.
