Enjoying the journey…

Last evening I was able to knit a few rows on my knitted blanket. I haven’t posted about this knitted blanket in a while. When it’s complete the blanket will be 6′/183cm wide and 8′/244 cm long.

Work in Progress – knitted blanket


It’ll make a nice blanket to snuggle in, when it’s chilly outside. Initially I had planned the exact colors I wanted for this blanket, but recently I abandoned that idea (even though the end result would have been beautiful) and decided this knitted blanket would be my surprise blanket. I’m really not going to think about the colors I choose. I’ll just pick up a skein of yarn and start knitting. The only requirements is that it has to be worsted weight.


Hmm… how can I claim this itty bitty blanket?


Well look who’s making an appearance! Mr. B! If I let him, he’d be curled under this itty bitty blanket. Sorry buddy, you’ll just have to wait until it’s finished.


But the yarn is so soft!

Mr. B, begging won’t work! But the yarn is so soft!


As you can see I still have a long ways to go, but I’m not discouraged and thinking there’s no end in sight! When I have a few moments, I pick up this blanket and start knitting.

    @Jennifer, Mr. Bentley is a real sweetheart. Today, when we left the house he was barking up a storm. My daughter and I both said (at the same time) he doesn’t want us to leave. I’m sure it’s true. We snuggled more than we normally do with him this weekend, and I made him an outfit. He usually hates wearing outfits, but since he recently got a haircut, and is adjusting to a lot less fur… the extra warmth was appreciated by him. :)
