I received the blanket in the mail yesterday from UPS. I was so excited. This is my FIRST oddball blanket. My first real charity knitting as well. The knitter before also included some cute little gifts in the box as well. I'll get some pictures up later tonight, when Lane takes his nap.
I was able to knit about an inch on it last night. I am using caron yarn. The color is a dusty rose. I am so excited about it. I am using a pattern called "waves". It came from my knitpicks.com afghan kit. I think it will be something different. Atleast I hope so.
I hope to get another inch or so knitted today. I want to get a few little goodies for the knitter after me to throw into the box. Hopefully I can finish it all up and get it out by the end of the week or early next week. That's my goal atleast. Then it's back to working on projects I currently have yarn for.
So there's my excitement for the day! I can't wait to see how these blankets turn out. I hope we can "vote" on which charities they go to. It would be nice to spread the love around I think!
