Yarn Along! (Finally!)

I have to finish a paper within the next two hours or so, but I snatched five minutes and my husband's camera before breakfast this morning and snapped a picture of Baby C's blanket.

It's nearly finished--2-6 more repeats of the four row pattern (I haven't decided how many yet) and then the garter border, and then blocking. It would have already been finished, except that this week is crazy (nothing new), and yesterday was a Super Crazy that resulted in very high levels of stress/anxiety ... which probably could have used some knitting. But one of the reasons for Super Crazy was this paper, and while I can knit and read at the same time, I haven't yet found a satisfactory way to knit and write. (I know about voice-to-text programs; but writing isn't the same thing as talking!)

Now my breakfast of penitentially plain oatmeal* is about finished, I should get to work before the anxiety takes over again.

And then once this paper is done I can knit.

Linking up with Ginny.


*Thanks to my friend Christine for suggesting ways to still participate in Ash Wednesday when I can't really fast. ;)

  5. The baby blanket looks incredibly cozy and I love the color you chose. As for knitting and writing, let me know when you've figured out how to do that! : )
