Interlude


Having just completed two (slightly more complicated) knitted requests - and with at least five more knitted gifts in the immediate queue - I'm taking a wee break to work on the blanket.

It's relaxing.

It's soothing.

It's fun to play with color.

It's all sorts of good.

I decided to add in one square from each of the skeins of sock yarn that I have in my stash (with the exception of a few skeins that haven't been wound down yet) just because it sounded like fun.  Also, some of the colors are phenomenal and I wanted to make sure they were immortalized in this particular blanket even though I'm likely to be done with it before I turn that yarn into socks.

I've given it two days so far this week, and probably will stay with it for a few more.

Then back to that queue!  I have girls who need more hats, mittens and scarves.  My dad wants his sweater asap, and there is a set of twins on the way who need something special. 

I've lots to do...and it feels great!
