can't... stop... knitting...

Ok, so I'm LOVING the garter stitch baby blanket. In fact, it's almost done. And I'm loving it so much I'm thinking about scrapping the shawl I was making my grandmother for her birthday (which I was NOT loving) and making her a lap blanket in a similar vein.

Those on ravelry click here for the sneaky preview (with new pics of the latest progress).

I think the reason I'm loving it is because it's SOOOOO simple. So. Simple. My brain has been exercised more than enough over the past few months in school related activities that I just can't process the difficult knits right now... One paper and one week left to go!!

I think it's back

My knitting mojo that is. It's been exactly a month since I last posted. Wow... I can't believe where the time is gone. I have just under 10 days to finish my last comp exam (in the form of a written paper) and I'm more than a little freaked out. I've barely been knitting at ALL, mainly due to stress and extended periods of freak out time in the library. Yesterday was the first time I actually took knitting with me to work on while I read so that I could calm down a bit. And of course, it is the simplest of projects, a gorgeously soft, stash-busting, garter stitch baby blanket for a friend who just gave birth earlier this week. A friend who is highly internet savvy, so pictures are staying off the blog for now.

Those of you on ravelry, however, can catch the sneak preview here!
