…and a lot of other stuff, too!

Hey, Bud! You’re Crowding the Shot!

It’s just another Saturday night at the homestead! I decided it’s been a while since I photographed the Brown Ripple Afghan, so I thought I’d do an update. Sir Goofnut, aka my 6-year-old son, decided that he needed to get in on the action. I laid the blanket out on the floor last weekend, and the consensus was that it was about half done. Sigh. I might make it a wee bit smaller, because I am anxious for Miss Z. to receive it. So I’ve been knitting a lot this weekend, trying to catch up. Unfortunately I am on the stripe that is from one of my lesser favorite yarns in the blanket, in that it is so much slipperier than the others. Thankfully that stripe is almost done.

So I’ve been knitting and listening to podcasts this weekend. The weather is good for it; it’s the end of March but temps were still below freezing this morning. Last night I listened to Kelley Petkun interview Janet Szabo on the Knit Picks Podcast. Then tonight, I was thrilled to learn that there is a new episode of Cast On available, and guess what??!!?? It’s all about HATS! Hats are my most favorite thing in the world to knit. In fact, I can’t wait to get done with this blanket so I can knit one! It’s been too long.

Anyway, back to the pointy sticks! It’s a great night, indeed.

    Hahahaha your son’s face is priceless. It almost looks as though he’s plotting something mischivous (sp?) whilst sitting there. That afghan is gorgeous too. Beautiful colors!

    I’m really liking your afghan project. I was wondering if that was one of the old kits from KP that you’re using for it, but looked in your archives and saw that you made your own. Great idea that I’ll be copying at some point in the hopefully-near future. 🙂
