Progress on the blanket


There is indeed progress on this blanket as every 38 rows, the color changes. I won't pretend that I will get this much done when school kicks in tomorrow, but it is nice to see some headway made on it, since have a few more to do.
Pattern is from Knit Along with Debbie Macomber - I am using size 6 instead of size 4 - of course it will make it bigger, but I couldn't see doing it on size 4 with the sport yarn I had. So far I have a lavender, a spring green and now a salmon that is just being introduced. Next will be a light pink, as the baby will be a girl! Grandma K wanted bright colors so she got 'em. (Don't know if she is reading my blog right now or not - will find out).

I do have a sock on the needle, but not quite ready to post it. I am using size 1 needles (2 circulars) and I seem to be knitting tightly. This is an assignment sock as I am working on one and a friend is working on another and it is self patterning/striping - her's seems to be pooling colors very differently than mine so we shall see the difference when I get a little further along!

By the way, Happy New Year for the liturgically inclined. I believe this is the very earliest that Advent can fall.

The blanket is beautiful, and striping will add dimensions; can't wait to see it finished.
