Baby Blanket

Now, I know I promised a picture of the baby blanket I've been working on, and it's been a while since I made that promise, but here it is now. I have been working so busily on the socks that I really haven't had much time for it, but I hope to find more time now. It isn't a great picture, but there isn't much to photograph yet. It is so amazingly soft that I wish you could feel it through the screen. Wow, that would be so cool. I think it would make knitting blogs much more popular.

The only things that might pull me away from working on the blanket it the new yarn I got on Friday. Now, this one you'd definitely want to be touching. It's 100% cashmere!!!! Sooooo Soft.... I'm going to make a hat for myself out of it, since it's been a while since I've made anything for myself. I can't wait. It picture does not do the color justice. It's the purdy one at the bottom. I went in to Urban Yarns looking for a different color of this yarn (I was going to make a gift hat for someone else), but they didn't have any, 'cause their shipment hadn't arrived yet. Hopefully it will come this week. Of course, I couldn't leave without anything, so I got the cashmere hat yarn, and some more of the fabulous Fleece Artist sock yarn, but in a different color this time ( the blue one on the side).

Now, with the hat, I didn't have the proper sized circular needle, so I was forced (tehe) to buy another Addi Turbo needle. Now I have a 2.5mm, 3.5mm, and a 4.5mm circular needle. My Addi empire grows. Wahahaha!!!!! I think I'm feeling a bit silly today. I think it's the Sudafed I've been taking for my sinuses (it's helping, by the way), but I still feel like crap.

I almost forgot. I am now a member of the Addi Ho web ring. Exciting stuff, huh? You can check out the button on the left side of my page.

I hope that was enough pics. I've finished my school stuff for today, so I'm gonna get started on the hat. Pictures soon.

Everthing is looking good. I wish that I didn't have the "second sock syndrom" otherwise I would have a proud collection to show off too.

Addi Ho?...what the hell?...count me in:o)

Hey Ariane,

I thought you'd be interested in that web ring :). And I think I have mild second sock syndrome, 'cause my first sock still doesn't have a mate.
