The Saga Continues- Blanket Part 8

May 2, 2013

The blanket is still growing, although I believe I hit a knitting black hole of sorts. No matter how many rows I seem to accomplish the section never seemed to grow, but thankfully/eventually I was at the point of binding off for section 8. Hurrah! I have taken to knitting this thing pretty much non-stop (aka no other project is getting any love, despite it’s call and my desperation.) I have been fortunate that our weekly shows for the most part have returned from their brief hiatus, as the countdown to season finales kicks into high gear. I am also pretty much freed of bi-weekly meetings in terms of my volunteer position.

The continuous garter stitch of this thing makes it perfect for television and movie knitting. We also had a semi-freakish (it is the midwest after all) cold snap and so the rest of the blanket is providing a nice little warmth barrier for me, while I knit, which is better than the alternative (80+ degree weather with a giant wooly blanket…I can feel the heat stroke already.) I still have a little over a month to go, and yet I can still feel the pressure mounting (hence the all blanket all the time motto.) Here’s hoping I can find interesting ways to keep you guys entertained in the next few weeks.

20130501_205505I have been attempting to limit the posts to when I finish a section, but knowing how much is left and how little time there is, you might start seeing it a bit more often. Best of luck to us all.

    Having knitted one of those blankets before I can feel your pain. TV show or movie marathons are the way to go.

  3. Q – Feeling your pain! That’s a Manatee House project. LOL!
