August 2008

Here is what the blankie looks like as of the beginning of August.  There are 44 blocks.  Most are from scraps from swaps.  The exception is the square made from the same yarn as my monkey socks.  Two of the squares are from my Secret Pal’s scraps.  The blankie is shaping up so nicely!!

I got some more scraps for the blankie from AgentScarlet on Ravelry!


I really do have a finished object to report (an old one…they have been done about a month)!  My first monkeys are done!!

I love this pattern!  It was easy and interesting to knit. I also loved the yarn.  The silk content in the yarn makes it so soft. I have worn these a few times!  The colors are also so soft.

See, there are two of them!!

I got my first Secret Pal package!! There was another Gnitgnome picture, a card, a pendant yarn cutter, a strawberry thing, and sock yarn (scraps for my blankie)!! It is a great package. There are already two squares made from the sock yarn! It is great that my pal is now part of my blankie!
