so its been really warm in the city lately. well, really warm for me at least. i'm sweating in anything above 70! is it winter yet?! oh man. so i figured this would be the best time to cast-on a chunky blanket hehe. i was walking around a couple blocks away from where i work and what do i stumble upon....the lion brand store! i must say, i wasn't really a big fan of lion brand, but the store is really great. it's big, lots of great yarn, computers to find and print patterns...and ac! awww yeaaaah. so i picked up some thick & quick deciding to make myself my first knit blanket. :) i started off with 3 skein and figured i'd just buy them as i knit them up.
i knit those 3 skeins in 3 days! granted, its super and bulky and on 13's...but still.
here is the blanket so far...
and here is betty trying to get my attention while i knit. hehe
here's hoping it cools off enough to finish this thing without sweating the whole way through. ;)
also, i really want to sew fabric on the back of the blanket once its done...anyone out there know how to do that, or have done it before? i think it would look really nice but have no idea how to go about doing something like that.
