Works in Progress: 11 February 2015

works in progressThe rainbow blanket is done. I finished it on a Saturday when Atticus had a wicked stomach virus. It could have used another skein of yarn and I wanted to do a border, but when a sick four-year-old is whimpering for  you to finish the blanket to make his tummy feel better you just get it done. He loves it

We put his little bed in the living room so I could sit up with him. He has a tendency for febrile seizures, so I get nervous when he is ill. He slept peacefully and cuddled with his blanket.

I thought I would move on to some Pinterest inspired valentines (so not happening this year) or some embroidery. Instead I whipped up a baby blanket for one of our student-employees who is expecting a baby boy at the end of the month.

I really like the colors. In fact, this was my original plan for Atticus’s blanket, but he insisted on a more literal interpretation of rainbows.

I used Vanna’s Choice yarn and it is just a basic granny square with a linen stitch border.

Hummmmm…. What’s next? Baby bibs. Everyone seems to be having babies right now and I need to get on it. Hold me to it you guys. I solemnly swear I will show y’all some stitchy goodness next week.

  1. Love the blankets – well done! I seem to either binge read, or do other things. I need to find a better balance between the two since my crafting projects are starting to pile up. Stitch on! 🙂
