If you have read my blog for a while you know that any time I work on a baby blanket, it is a Baby Blanket of Doom!!! Doom because it can take years and years to finish a pithy little blankie. This blankie was started in July of 2007 when I moved to Washington. It moved with me back to California, sat in my bag of half done nonsense for 2 years or more before I picked it back up and knit the second half.
The blanket is about 3′ x 3′ which I think is a good size for a baby blanket. I may gie this to Bill’s brother and sis-in-law who are expecting a wee girl in a while. I may not, I don’t know if it’s good enough to give to them. I have plenty of yarn left in both the colors above and coordinating colors, so there may be a sweater and some booties in order.
I would like to say that this will be the last blanket of doom, but we both know I’m lying. In super-awesome news, my sister sent me a sweet care package of yarn and old photographs of us back in our teens. Absolutely awesome. She has great taste in expensive yarn, so I will have an alpaca sweater before the end of the year. More on that to come.
Christmas break is over and I am glad for it. The holidays are stressful. So is work and I do get less sleep when I’m back at work, something about teaching makes me wake up at 4 am worried every day, but at least I’m not freaking out over family stuff.
The pup is fabulous, in case you were wondering.
