FO: another colorblock bias blanket.

Turns out that actually knitting produces actual finished objects! Even though we’re solidly into warmer temperatures, I’m excited to get this in the mail and to its intended owners, dear friends who had a second baby boy a handful of months ago.

I know they don’t exactly need warmth right now, but I’m hoping this will be useful down the road.

It’s actually a little chilly here right now, and I didn’t mind at all having this blanket on my lap as I wove in all the ends last night!

This guy, not at all interested in whatever I was doing yesterday.

And eek! I picked up my regalia yesterday for this weekend’s graduation. I’m not doing the whole big procession-thing, or even the hooding (the PhD ceremony where the dean puts the fancy hood–the thing on the right in this picture, with the blue velvet signaling the doctorate–on you), but I am going to attend my department’s graduation ceremony on Sunday, and for that, I need the fancy robes. I sort of think it isn’t going to feel real until sometime in the middle of the fall semester, when I’ve gotten used to being called Dr. Rooster or Professor Rooster by my students, but I will say that trying on this stuff yesterday helped a little bit…

  1. Congrats on the ceremony! You’ve worked hard to get there. And, babies do need blankets all year ’round. Air conditioning makes for chilly rooms. And some babies just like to be swaddled in a blanket.

  2. Congratulations! My cousin went through that last semester. I’m so proud of her and I know how relieved, excited, relieved, jittery, relieved, and many other adjectives she felt. Enjoy it all.

    I love those bias blankets you’ve made. I may have to give that pattern a try. I think this last one is my favorite. It does look warm and cozy. It’s quite cool here in West Virginia this morning.

    Again, congratulations.

  3. Congratulations! I’ve written it before, but with an accomplishment this tremendous, repeating congratulations are in order.
    However, I don’t think Boh cares!
    Make sure someone takes a picture of you in your garb!! We want to see!!
    Have fun and enjoy the ride!
