So, wow...I have a lot of catching up to do on the blog front. Lots of yarnin has been goin on and I need to show you!! All this time...I have been working on a baby blanket using intarsia techniques. Not hard, just trying...my patience. Lol Being that it was my first time doing intarsia I had to be totally on the ball. I would find myself following the color chart...backwards in the middle of the row, when I should have been going the opposite direction. Arrrgh...I spent more time fixing my fudges. LOL But the end result is pretty darned impressive (if I do say so myself)
Blocking it on the other hand, another story. I only have a large enough area that is traffic free during the day on my bed. Which meant that I didnt put enough padding (I used a blanket folded in half, but it wasnt enough) beneath the damp blanket and we got to sleep on damp sheets. =/ Good thing that the weather is warm.

I have crocheted a few things in between to break up the monotony...
I need to weave in some ends on all this crochet stuff...
I love the colors on this crochet circle blanket! Someone mentioned that it reminded them of the inside of a jawbreaker. Ha! They are right about that!! =o)
And today, I am back to knitting. Here is my WIP below:
