Some piccies!

Blogger finally wants to play nice again & let me upload piccies.  Yay!!  So here's my finished blanket.  It comfortably fits on a single bed (maybe a tad short) & as you can see, is the perfect summer knitting project.  Lol!!  Well, it worked fine until it came time to join them (knitted 3-needle bind-off join) and do the I-cord border  All.  The way.  Around.

That's a lot of garter stitch!  And I was bitten by the mitred crosses blanket bug so bad, I've started another one.  This time in pink/blue/green/brown bordered in grey.  Not loving it quite so much the second time around, which doesn't bode so well for the yarn I bought in a fit of MUST MAKE BLANKETS for a third one.  Well, there was a sale, and there was this lonely looking yummy yarn, and my credit card kinda leapt into my hand, and ... I'm hopeless.

Oh! and for Christmas, my lovely friend D gave me a sheep doorstop (works - and looks - soooo much better than the pair of shoes I'd been using!!), and THIS:

Love it!  She knows me so well.  (Mwah! for you D!!)
