well, for socks #2 it's already here.
i've also finally finished the blanket:
this blanket was knit in strips 35 sts across, changing colors every 48 rows to reduce seaming all the squares together. the strips were then seamed together and the blanket was blocked as a whole. the yarn is GGH Solitaire - 44% wool, 43% acrylic and 13% elite for ease of washing. knitting in strips definitely cut my seaming time down, but man were there a lot of ends to weave in...
but the exciting news is that the pieces for my cardigan are finally blocking.
i can't wait to get this thing done, yet i am not really looking forward to all the seaming, especially since the temps have been going up and is forcasted to continue to rise. yet, to celebrate i cast on a toe-up sock. well, what else was i to do with everything else on the blocking boards?!??
