Knitting project

Last week, I began knitting a new scarf for myself. Its one of those ruffly, twirly things you may have seen. The name of the pattern is "potato chip scarf" and it is such fun to work on and more than easy. As soon as I finish it (soon) will post a pic here for you to see.

Knitted blocks..........

Yesterday, I sorted through the knitted blocks I made last year after completing the large afghan for son and his wife's Christmas gift.  When their two children commented that they would like their own blankets, I began knitting blocks again.  Of course, as usual, I went overboard on the time spent knitting and had very sore hands and wrists!  So, the blocks were put aside.  Since its now November, I began thinking of Christmas and then had a lightbulb moment......putting together the blankets for the grandchildren.

I laid out the blocks and sewed one row together last night.  I did leave them as they were (on the living room carpet) and will sew more today.  Stay tuned for pictures of the pink/purple/green blanket.  Then, onto the boy colors for the second one.

Of course, I will have MANY leftover blocks.....maybe I'll donate them to the church group???  Don't think hubby & I need more blankets!

Have a great day!

P.S.  See the Dec. 16, 2010 post for a pic of the blanket I made last year.
