So, I've finished all the side strips of the blankie, and I think it looks pretty good. It's a bit short, though, so I'm thinking I'm going to do a couple of end strips in a different cable pattern and sew them on sideways. I'm not sure when I'll do that, because I'm starting to feel the pinch of the holidays coming, and there's some gift knitting to be done.
So, the next couple of projects will be secret knitting experiments, that may or may not show up here, due to their potential gift nature, although neither of the recipients reads this blog. We'll just have to see how they turn out. At least they'll be easy to do!
Coming up for gifting.....two cowls with a favorite sports team theme, a couple of fingerless mitts, same theme, possibly a shawl and some socks, and of course, blankie and sock yarn blankie. (oh, and a super secret other project.....you'll just have to guess!)
On a happy note, the baby sweater has found it's new home and baby. No word from the recipient yet, but I hope they're warm and happy!
