Oh My GOSH!!!

I have a comment! (Hi Kelli!!) Yeah, I have been a total bore, I know. But now I am tossing something around in my head - and believe me, there is a lot of room in there! I have been inspired by Kay and Ann's participation with Oliver's American blanket . I think I may want to make my own. I know, I know, this could be a project of Epic Proportions - or the "Project of Death," however you want to look at it. But I have loads of lovely ends of sock skeins.......Koigu, Lorna's, other fantastic hand-dyeds, and the little balls just sitting in their plastic box doesn't thrill me like a blanket draped across my lap with memories of all my sock projects woven (well, knitted) into it. I mailed off my squares on Saturday, and hopefully Kay has them now. Honestly, I could have made a whole blanket on my own from my remnants. But the Holidays and it's associated knitting, looms large for me right now, so I have spend enough time on squares (for the moment).

Here's the holiday knitting countdown:

1) fair isle hats for nephews A, B, and C (in their high school colors - even though they are not in high school.....yet)
2) socks for FIL
3) socks for youngest's teacher

Five weeks and counting......wish me luck!

P.S. And, Oh Joy!!! Youngest's teacher's wife is having a baby!!! I get to knit a baby blanket!!! And just when I really wanted to knit another one and had no Bee-Bee to knit for!

P.S.S. Happy T-day folks! I'm off to bake more PIES!

listen to that knitterbunny, she makes sense.

As for sock scraps, I'm using mine up for Oliver's blanket too. I'm sure that there will be enough squares for more than 2 or 3 blankets
