Drive-by birthday post!

June 7, 2007 at 12:14 pm | Posted in log cabin blanket, Random babble, WIPs | 6 Comments

Yes, it’s my birthday today, so I thought I’d get in a quick post before I head off to work. I’m 23 years old today, and sometimes I don’t feel like I’m much older than 18. (Don’t act like it sometimes, either. *grins*)

And just to be sure there’s actual knitting content in this entry, I give you my updated log cabin blanket!

It’s grown quite a bit. When I’m sitting down, it now covers from my waist to my ankles. It’s a little less than halfway done, I think, judging by that. Of course, I’m running out of colours. I found some more odd balls of worsted acrylic last night to add on a few more sections, but I think I’m going to have to buy more yarn to finish this.

Fortunately, that’s covered in the Knit From Your Stash rules, that I can buy more yarn to finish a project if I need to, so it won’t technically be breaking the yarn diet. So I sense a trip to Value Village is coming, so that I can get at least a few more grab bags of yarn to help finish this blanket.

Jakob thinks it’s far too early to be blogging.

  1. The blanket is coming along nicely! I’m impressed that people can knit blankets; it must take a lot of patience. Cute kitty!

  2. Well, Happy Birthday to you then! (Isn’t buying birthday yarn okay by the Knit from Your Stash rules?) Have a wonderful day!

  3. Happy birthday! A trip to Value Village is always a good thing. Seriously, I love the Value Village here.

  4. Happy birthday! I didn’t get a chance to comment on your last entry, either — Silkie is very cute! And I’d love to see a pattern for Akatonbo, if no one else does…

  5. I do believe you are allowed to buy yarn on your birthday, or coerce others into buying it for you.

  6. Happy belated birthday!! Sorry that I missed that one, I was clearly too busy knitting hats. x
