Inch by Inch, Row by Row…

… I’m going to make this blanket grow :)

I’m still taking things very carefully, knitting-wise. I think I’ve finally reconciled myself to the need to check in with a medical person about my frequently resurgent RSI/muscle-achy-terribleness (technical term ;) ), because even though I’m trying to minimize my keyboard time and other repetitive activities, I can still feel the twingey pain coming on pretty quickly.

Despite all of that, a row or two each day is happening! Just so that my hands don’t forget knitting altogether, and because it’s good for my mental health.

I’m inching along on the medium green stripe, and still LOVING how this blanket looks.

It also FEELS pretty wonderful. Squishy and drapey at the same time, just enough warmth but not too much.

I can definitely see more of these blankets in my future! A perfect relaxing project for an evening at home, with the bonuses of fun opportunities to play with colour and (obviously) an amazing blanket at the end :) Even though a wool blanket seems pretty seasonally inappropriate, I’m glad this is what’s on my needles.

What are you knitting these days? I’d love to hear about it!

Vacation… knitting?

Remember I was all set to head out for some travel? I wound up these two lovely skeins…

Ready to go :)

And went on my way! My vacation looked like this:

Beach!

AAH!

Yep, so pretty

Wowza

And… okay… also like this:

Okay fine, I also ate this awesome waffle

I did finally cast on one of the projects I planned!

Finally casting on!

But the trip was so amazing that I only got a tiny bit knit, as you can see.

Not much progress, but a good vacation

I’m home again, feeling grateful for the beautiful and fun things I saw and did (even if they didn’t include knitting, this time!)
