Blankie's in the Lead

The race is on and here come blankie. So far, baby's not even at the track. This pattern has done what no other blankie before it had; I'm still knitting and I'm not hating the blankie! I figure I've just crossed the half-way mark, so with a meeting tomorrow night, no Knight on Tuesday, and no other obligations for the rest of the week, it should be done this weekend, at the latest, all of a few days before the baby is due. If you're inclined to cheer us on, obviously, blankie would feel supported by all things yellow. (School starts tomorrow here. I wonder if blankie will be encouraged by the big yellow bus?)

Evidently, the Knight knows of what he demands. The baby's father has said that if the blankie's ready, all of the hospital photos will be taken with blankie showing. I guess that means I should stop blogging and return to knitting. That, and the roll of thunder that just boomed.

Least you think I've forsaken the sock or something, I have picked out the yarn and pattern for my Sock it to Me pal's socks. Yeah, yeah, I'm going to start more than a month before they're due. Get this - I've even ordered the yarn I'm going to include in her package. (I do require breaks from blankie, thank you.) I also ordered the yarn for a Christmas present, and I'm re-doing my Christmas knitting list.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to order the pattern for said Christmas present too. Of course, if anything else jumps in the virtual cart, that just can't be helped, can it?

What a beautiful baby blanket, Chan. That's one lucky baby. Ah, virtual yarn and pattern shopping. My favorite pastime. Glad you will be getting in some quality knitting time this week. Me, too. DH gone, MS knits like a demon.

LOL @ blankie in the lead.
I think you are enjoying the pattern repeats which is not mindless! That is probably helping!

To keep encouraging you thru this week so blankie can make the photo ops with the baby *here are some yellow sunflowers!* :oD
