Monday my hubby had Knee Surgery! Poor guy has been laid up all week and I have been running around like crazy, getting ice packs, pain meds, T.V. remotes, drinks, cell phone etc. etc.etc.
I did manage to find some time in the evenings to finish this blanket that I've been making for my friend's son, who started it months ago after I taught him the basic stitch, and he asked
if I would finish it for him when he went away to college.
Below is just after I started the blanket towards the end of September.
He bought the yarn so long ago we couldn't find anymore of the blue or beige.
So I worked with just the brown and black yarn and found in my stash of yarn a little cream with
brown flecks that worked to break up the brown and black stripes.
I think it worked out well. I hope my friends son is pleased with it too.
He comes home from college this weekend.
Well, I enjoyed my little down time. Back to the ice packs.
