I was inspired by the cheapo pound of yarn at Michael's. My new project is a fabulous knit blanket, with big red and white squares, made with basket weave. I'm going to connect them with black yarn, and I'm thinking about putting little things in the middle of the squares. I think it'll be dice, but I flirted with the idea of cowboy hats and boots, or little itty bitty skulls. Fun! Here's a picture of me working on it at Rachael's place.
And that's a corner of her new couch you can see. The only problem is, this is a very bulky project, and space is at a premium in little Tachy. I may leave it here, as I do already have 3 projects going. Sigh. I know my sister loves to start projects, and it's all about the journey for her, but for me, it's all about the finished product. I can't start something without wishing it was done and in front of me instantaneously. So it's hard to purposely leave behind a project. I want that blankie!
We are off to cruise the coast, top down in the rain, because ollallaberry pie at Duartes is calling. Yay for mini road trips, especially those with sisters. Happy New Year! Start it well.
