So the blanket is not that uneven but I was trying to get a picture before this happened.
That would be Kelsey who should've been a cat. She loves all blankets and piles of clothes. Anyways, this is for my (future) nephew (who is born already but K & I need to get engaged and married) who I get to meet this weekend. We'll only be there for a day since it's an 8 hour drive one way, and I have to work Sat and we both work Mon. but he's getting baptized. I copied the colors from a lady on Rav. some but then modified and added the grays instead of using tans because it'll match the color scheme in his room. This kid should never go cold because he has this blanket, a blanket his aunt crocheted, and a quilt his Grandma made. I used Vanna's Choice so they can just throw it in the wash...they also have 2 dogs in addition to the baby so I know they need the easy care. I'm looking forward to seeing them.
It's really weird to knit something for someone and actually giving it to them. I usually chicken out but I'm getting better.

Vanilla sock using Patons Kroy in the Cherry Sours colorways that I bought on clearance at Michaels. I'm only going to work on these in public so I can knit on other things at home. I don't have much sock yarn that I want to knit into socks left so I have to keep these specifically for travel/ out and about knitting. I started these while sitting outside at the river trail (under a tree by the loop with the pond) while Kenny was riding his bike. I wanted to walk more with the girls but Leena hurt her paw immediately when we got there and was limping. She is fine now. She probably stepped on a piece of glass or a sharp rock in the parking lot.

a mystery with joji and pediatrics, a photo by vcuchica931 on Flickr.
So this is what I've been spending my Saturday evening doing! I've been reading peds all day but I just started knitting and took a break from the taking of notes at about 9:30. I told myself it's quitting time but I need to move the book from in front of me because I keep reading.
Anyways, I'm finally on clue 3 of the Mystery with Joji Shawl. It's a fun knit! I still have WAY more yarn than I think I'm supposed to have at this point...so much so I think I will have enough yarn to even do another one of these! I probably won't, but there are other 3 color projects I could make. I do love this shawl though. I may modify the edging. Well technically I already did as I only did my "fringe" as 2 stitches instead of 10. I haven't decided yet so I'll definitely post a picture once I get to that point or finish.
I do like having a normal phone again since it makes taking progress pictures much easier. Also posting to Blogger and Flicker are quick too. What I don't like doing is posting links. But here's the one to the shawl pattern.
It's a 3 day "weekend" (not for me; I just have Monday since I work every Sat and Sun) so hopefully I'll be more productive with my schoolwork after I get off of work tomorrow. I would like to post about how crazy this semester is/going to be. Hope everyone has a safe and fun weekend!

I was lucky enough to be gifted a pattern by stacieknits on plurk because she's awesome like that. She gifted me the new mystery pattern by Joji L. so I cast it on the 4th. I'm still on the second clue. The third clue will be released tomorrow. I'm loving the pattern so far. Now that I've worked with all three yarns I'm not too sure about my color choices but it'll be alright because I'm not ripping.
