my week at the lake was beyond relaxing.
words and photos can not do it justice.
there was also knitting to be knit while relaxing at the lake. i worked a bit on my latest ripple afghan, but mostly worked on blankie.
what is this ghost of a project?!?
ahem. you *may* remember back in february of 2009 when i started a sock yarn blanket? no? that's okay, i'm not offended, you can click here for the post if you feel you'd like to.
it turns out i've been working on this one solid section of blankie for well over a year... the first blog reference i can find to it is in april of 2013 and even then i was speaking of, "dusting it off." so for at least a year and a half blankie has languished in a mostly ignored state.
finally i had had enough! i brought the solid square with me and spent all week working away on it, and on the drive home finished the last stitch on the most drawn out square of all time...
it doesn't look like much, does it? i know... but please take a moment to appreciate the subtle shading of the yarn and the fanciful angles of the mitered squares... okay, i know, it's boring... but with it's completion i have now made six of the nine squares of my blankie:
and that, to me at least, is not boring at all! i am recharged! bring it blankie!!! i am super excited to knit your sweet little squares again!!!
