A Work in Progress

Just like the baby, KMP's blanket #2 is still a work in progress. ::sigh:: I had hoped to have finished the blanket by now so I could take a different and new project with me on the train ride to Boston tomorrow. Alas and alack, the knitted Homespun blanket will be with me. Unlike KMP's situation, carrying this project around is a lot less of a hassle as an overdue 8 lb baby boy.

Knit Homespun Baby Blanket 3

Currently, the blanket is 37" wide by 19 1/2" long. I'm 2 skeins in and I bought the third one today at Joann's. I had hoped to only use two skeins but that just didn't happen. As a consolation gift, I bought myself an Artbin yarn caddy/organizer. I got it at Joann's for $8 and it's a lovely burgundy color. I didn't have time to put stuff in it today, so it will have to wait until New Year's weekend.

I'll be knitting away on the train for the 7 hour trip up to New England - so there's still a chance this blanket will wind up in the "completed in 2008" pile. But it won't be done in time for the baby's arrival because if KMP hasn't had him already, she's scheduled to be induced tomorrow! (Tuesday Dec 23rd)

Girls - if I hear anything, I'll text message you and vice versa, okay?

Sounds good. I finally started on the hat. It's going to be so cute. Now, if I could just finish it...
I love the blanket you are making. It's very pretty. Have a wonderful holiday!

Did you hear how big his head is??? You'll need to adjust it! :)

Thanks for pointing that out. I did hear how big his head was, but it didn't occur to me that I might have to change the hat. Blonde! Fortunately, the pattern is for 3-9 months, not newborn. The hat is already 14 inches and the yarn is pretty stretchy. Since it warms up there in February, I'm not too worried. LOL!
