The Return of the Blankie

brown ripple afghan in progress

I feel ashamed. It is so easy to be swayed by other projects these days. Especially now that it is hot and I’m generally cranky and tired. Most of my knitting time is also limited to knitting by the pool or during my commute in the car. Which, I’ve rationalized, is too hard for working on a large project by my brown ripple afghan. So it’s been easy to leave it alone.

But, the fact is that I have to get this done. Lots of people have contributed to it by knitting in stitches or rows. It even survived a major disaster. Now, the fact is that I just need to get it done. And I will. I’m just not sure when. But soon, ok? I’ll keep plugging away.

Remembering My Friend

Today, the following news story hit the wires:

Money ruling a remarkable woman’s legacy

Dr. Sandra Welner was a pioneer in the field of Women’s Health for Women with Disabilities. And she was my friend. I still miss her every day.

    I think the blanket looks lovely, and I’m really glad to see that it survived the accident.
    I have a technical question for you –
    When using that many yarns, do you carry them all up the side or cut and start anew for each color/yarn? I’m rather new to this multi-color knitting thing, and I believe I’m bungling it…
    I found you through searching for multi-colored afghans and advice on Ravelry, by the way.
    Thank you for sharing your work!

    I just read the article about Sandy. What a remarkable woman. I have goosebumps.
