Memorial Day fun
We stayed home today instead of going over to my MIL's for a BBQ. Aaron went, but I have a major homework assignment due tomorrow and I was still trying to start it, (so naturally I felt compelled to blog). Aaron headed over late and would be staying late so that meant that Alex needed to stay home with me. Dante went out to get into a pick-up game of basketball, so he stayed behind too. It's a nasty gray day and Alex is struggling with some hyper-sensitivity, which isn't going over too well with Aaron today so it's probably for the best that we stayed here.
pattern book available for preorder that i really loved, and I used my Mother's Day gift card to pay for it (thank you Aaron!).
POP Blanket. It's unbelievably fast and addicting. I've knit six squares in the last 24 hours. It only takes about as long to knit one of these as it does to knit a hexipuff, but I need a heck of a lot less of these. I love this so much! It's definitely cheering me up and I feel so much more like myself today. However, I see a second one of these in my future because I really want to have the white border and I don't have enough white Eco Wool so I'm using a taupe yarn I have on hand. It's cool, but the effect is very different from the sample that I fell in love with. I really don't want to buy a skein of yarn for this but it might come down to that. I don't have enough of the white I got as the Vermont fiber festival, and I'm not sure if the Cascade 220 I have on hand is thick enough. Maybe I'll knit a square with it and see how I like it. Either way, this blanket is happening, and it's happening right now!
