The Blanket Grows

I didn't do much yesterday on the blanket after work because I was knocked on my arse by a funk that was almost flu-like. Instead, I stayed in bed and slept for 12.5 hours straight. It seemed to do some good though since tonight I was able to work more on the giant granny square. Here's the progress:I'm really enjoying making this and the colors are much darker than they appear in the picture thanks to the flash. This is going to be DF's niece's baby blanket for her daughter that I promised his mom I would make for her. I think this will be a nice heirloom-type piece that will hold up well since it's all out of superwash sock yarns made with merino and nylon. It's soft and durable, perfect for baby stuff.

Plus it's keeping me entertained. That's it for today. I'm off to bed again early to get rid of the last of this funk.

Knit on...

Wow, I didn't realize you were making a giant granny square afghan! To me the joy of granny squares is making small, easily-finished motifs, which is very satisfying--I think a big one would be really frustrating for me. Go you!
