Big boring baby blanket
That's what I've been working on this week... that is, when I get a few minutes in the evening to sit down and knit a few rows. I really need to get the blanket done soon, because knitting a baby blanket is not terribly interesting. And, this is the 2nd light blue project in a row for me - too much blue! I'm dying to start in on the green laceweight yarn that I bought to start the lace leaf shawl so I can try out my new Bryspuns. Not until I finish this blanket though!
I made up my own pattern for the blanket, based on a stitch pattern from the Big Book of Knitting Stitch Patterns. It is looking pretty good so far - it is a simple block pattern of alternating stockinette, reverse stockinette, and seed stitch blocks with a garter stitch border. I'll post pictures when I have more time, and plan to make the pattern available here as soon as I finish knitting it.
