I Miss You Already

I have a thing for granny blankets.  You know the ones, the hodge podge of color that are actually pretty beautiful because they're full of love?  Well, I made one:

A little bit about this blanket.  I'm calling it the "I Miss You Already" blanket.  The pattern is the In Love With Color throw from the Red Heart website (it's a free pattern, y'all!).  The reason I call it that is because the day I dropped my husband off at the airport, I picked out all the colors based on how I felt the moment I got home.

I actually hadn't planned it, it was a spur of the moment thing.  I picked out my colors not knowing what I was going to make and then I picked out the pattern.  The pattern itself was really easy and I'd been steadily working on this blanket since the day he left.  The blanket is roughly the size of a standard baby blanket or a lapghan.

Okay, on to other stuffs.

I have been working on my Geisha, but she still doesn't look like I've done much because everything I've done is back stitching.  So I will try to update when I get a little more done on her.  

I'm STILL waiting on my yarn from Hobby Lobby to get here so that I can continue my work on Sophie.  I probably won't finish that blanket before we move which is really stressful.  I'm definitely bringing that one in the car with me so it doesn't get lost in the move.

In the meantime I've started another blanket.  I know, I know, I don't need any more blankets.  I can't help it, I just LOVE blankets.  Really.  Ask my husband.  Every single year for Christmas I want a new blanket.  Anyway, the new project I'm working on is called Tides Of Change (Another free pattern, y'all!) and I'm doing mine in various shades of purple.  I saw the pictures of the blanket and immediately knew it had to be the same person who made the Rings Of Change (alas, not free) pattern.

Okay, I'm off to watch some Courage the Cowardly Dog with my minions.  Happy stitching, everyone!
