I finished one side today.  3 more to go.

I have 145 more squares to go for the other blanket.  Still chugging along.

150 and counting!

image

To celebrate getting to 249 squares, I took a picture of all the squares together.  Some are sewn, some are blocked, and some are not. ..  Why 249?  Because the total goal is 399, so now I only have 150 to go!  I can do this! 

Next celebration point is probably in April. ..

Looks like less than January, but the yarn is tied up in Quill.

14 more rows to the edging… so close! But the rows are so long now.

Happy Lunar New Year.

I’ve been busy busy busy.  But the Quill blanket has been coming along nicely.

I started a couple of things on Saturday. This is the Boy’s Valentine/birthday present. Since I am probably not going to make it in time, I already spoiled the surprise. He said he wants shorter socks. Next time. Less for me to knit! Haha.

image

I started on another WWFY project. Mindless garter stitch for awhile. It goes pretty fast, too. It’s the softest yarn I’ve felt…

Still chugging along on my squares. I got sick, so I skipped a day, but hopefully I’ll catch up.

FO Friday: Velvet Stole

I need a selfie stick!  Haha…  In all honesty, I wanted the Boy to help me take pictures, but between blocking and mailing it, there wasn’t enough time to ask him.  So I did it while walking to the post office.

image

The ribbing was killer toward the end, but I persevered and it is gorgeous.  I’m contemplating another version for my mom, but definitely shorter and maybe wider.  If I drape it over my neck, the ends almost reach the floor.  I’m 5’2″, but still.  Before blocking, it only reached my knees, and I thought THAT was long!

image

The fabric is so wonderfully drapey and squishy.  It was hard to get a good picture, but I did my best.  I’m sad that it is going away, but I am happy that I’m done with it.  Fingers crossed that it gets there!

Totals are in for January!  This is for completed balls of yarn/completed projects.

Still working away on these squares.  Some days I have to play catch up, but I’ve been pretty consistent.

Birthday socks for Rebecca!  I actually started in the beginning of January but took a break with the shawl project.
