Hi, friends. Haven’t been blogging, but clearly, I have been knitting. (And writing, and even running/working out.) Not quite settled into a summer routine, but closer than I was a few weeks ago. And I’m pretty sure this blanket pattern is helping. I’ve got such a backlog of wedding gifts to knit, and this pattern is perfect: easy enough to knit after a long day, fun for playing with color and yarns in my stash, and really, really lovely when it’s all done. Here’s my latest:
The colors are more accurate above, but here’s one shot with the flash on:
It’s a bit grey and rainy, so there isn’t as much natural light for picture-taking as I’d like, but you get the idea. With this one, I worried less about the amount of yarn I had for each color, and just picked colors I thought might be nice. I really like the mint green Malabrigo stripe in there, and with the switch to some darker greens and blues near the end, I think I’ve changed who this is for! (Not to worry, though. I’ve already started a third…)
Other stuff happening around here?
Our first of many weekly walks en route to picking up the farm share. (Paws/toes in the water.)
Lots of water and mist after some steady rain.
Boh, mid-yawn. Love this dog.
Love this blanket! And what a cute helper you have!
Awww, I love Boh! Sweetest doggie EVER. And that blanket is awesome — the mint green stripe is so cool! I don’t know what it is, but somehow it just ties everything together beautifully. (I loved your last colorblock blanket, too, btw…you’re making me want to knit one. :) ) Hope the knitting and writing mojo keeps going!
If it was not in the 90s with high humidity here, you’d make me want to knit a blanket!
So pretty! And yay! for summer routines … I’m still looking for one. Glad Boh is taking his helper duties seriously.
