I did it! I finished an adult lap blanket it ONE WEEK!!
Here I had only just started the pattern the Thursday before July 4. Aren't the colors fun? :)
I brought this blanket with me on our mini vacation to Bristol, Rhode Island to visit a former roommate and experience the longest celebration of Independence Day. During the 4 and a half hour long parade I accomplished an entire segment (yellow, green, variegated, pink, and back to yellow)! Yes, I did get quite a few "compliments" on my "knitting," i.e. "Isn't it a bit too hot to be knitting?" one soldier joked. Why yes sir, it is merely 88* in the sunshine, but that is why I am not keeping it on my lap, but next to me. :)
It was a wonderful day of amazing period costumes and many military veterans along with local business owners and organizations' floats.
I can't believe I get to say it is already complete but I do and what makes it even better is I get to display it for the Toledo Art Walk that I am participating in tomorrow! If you are in the area, I hope you'll stop by and say hello. :)
I have a few other new goodies that are awaiting their close-up, like a few braceletes and soap savers, and I hope to post about them soon.
