Afghans for Afghans Blanket *Couverture pour Afghans for Afghans
Here's the baby blanket I made for Afghans for Afghans, following Elizabeth Zimmermann's pattern for a garter stitch baby blanket made by knitting four right angles. I worked it in stripes to highlight the design. The weird color variations were due to the fact that I kept running out of a certain color of yarn, so I had to keep changing colors! I think the overall effect is okay, though, and it's very warm and comfy. I put it in the mail on Friday, so it should be getting to the collection center soon.
I think I'm going to have to take it easy with the French, since I've realized that I haven't been blogging as often or as extensively now I've committed myself to a bilingual blog. I do want to keep it up some, but I can't let it start feeling like homework - so it'll have to be a sometimes thing.
Resting up from the weekend's work (and from the effects of the flu shot I got today). Going to have tea with my favorite kindergartner and her mom tomorrow - so it looks to be a good week. :)
