I made some progress on the baby blanket, another repeat down, and hopefully one more complete repeat tonight during the Sox game. I should be knitting socks, but I want to have this blanket done! I decided to do more repeats because I have the yarn-4 more skeins and can still use some of that for a baby hat and booties even if I knit more on the blanket. I am cautiously optimistic about another World Series victory for the Red Sox. My fenway picture for my office came and is going up on the wall today! yay!
I am also officially graduate and college debt free today.
I joined a lace KAL as well because I like knitting lace, I have been missing it since I finished the Grandma Anne Vine Shawl Wrap.
It's the Mystic Waters KAL and can be found here: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/mysticwatersKAL/
I ordered some yarn from handpaintedyarn.com in the lace weight for it. It's the Azul Francia. I think it will be gorgeous. I stopped by Ew'll Love It and picked up some blue yarn for it because as much as I searched yesterday I could not remember handpaintedyarn.com but wouldn't you know that as soon as I bought other yarn I found the site. I will use the laceweight I bought for a shawl of my own design I think. It's a beautiful light blue color perfect for something that draws inspiration from fluffy clouds and the pale spring sky.
