So far

So far, I have 11 squares knitted out of a total of 48. If I continue at my current pace, I predict I will fail miserably. I'll no longer be able to visit the the Yarn Harlot's blog out of shame for my abject failure. The unfinished blanket will sit in a shopping bag, filling my apartment with its resentful presence.

I should probably knit faster.

As soon as I knit the first square, I knew I had even more to contend with than originally thought. I'm going to have to block each and every one of these suckers before I sew them together.

See how it isn't square? Isn't that a great plot twist?

This guy wanted in on the photo shoot. Blog, meet Max. He likes to eat yarn. And toilet paper.

Also, I don't know why my horizontal pictures aren't horizontal. If I stop to figure out why, I will never post this blog. I'll try to fix it before my next post. Toodles.

Knitting Olympics

I'm coming out of blog hibernation to participate in the 2010 Knitting Olympics.

I'm knitting this blanket (Ravelry link) out of some reclaimed Goodwill yarn.

Should be fun! Who's DVRing Olympic curling?
