It's September. It's back to school. It's back to reality. It's back to work. I had the BEST summer ever. I was so busy that I didn't have time for knitting or blogging or even emailing. I might try to do some retro-posts to cover some of the wonderful things I did this summer, but this might be as good as it gets. I hope you all had enjoyable summers, too.
I have been knitting a little here and a little there. I recently finished another batch of 7x9 swatches for my blankets. I'm really happy with the way they turned out.
In fact, I loved the happiness of this blanket so much that I'm seriously thinking about making it twice as big and making it for a dear friend of mine. I started a blanket for her, but it's not cheery enough. This one is so much happier that I think I might have to grow this one for her. I love the hearts. I love the stitch samples (althought the lack of symmetry with the pale pink stitch sample swatches bothered BF's sense of matchi-ness). I love five different colors. And for some reason, I especially love this unifying swatch with all five colors in one swatch.
So, I think it's decided. I'll be knitting at least 24 more swatches to transform this blanket from a child's blanket to an adult's blanket. It will be so much fun.
