Whelp - I had a pretty productive week as far as working on the slip stitch scarf I decided to knit. Granted, while the scarf was going to be for me, the more I work on it, the more it turns into a scarf for my friend, T. I really think she would love it. I would say I'm 3/4 of the way done with it sooooo I suppose I need to figure that out soon, eh? I'll post about it with a picture when I get it done.

As promised, here is a picture of the Navajo blanket as it stands right now.

I have added 3 rows to it since revealing it to my brother on Christmas day. I know its going to be a slow progress item, maybe even slow enough that I use it for one of my State Fair entries. Thoughts?

Other than that, I haven't been at work since December 20th. I do go back this Wednesday so I'm not totally looking forward to that. I like staying up late, sleeping in, and knitting/crocheting whenever I want.

A girl could get used to this.

The Navajo blanket looks great. I've been off work since the 20th too, except that I'm missing it. I just feel like I'm puttering about and wasting time.

I love the blanket so far - I think it would do great in a State Fair entry. Happy New Year! Best wishes for a wonderful 2013.

I have been off work the same amount of time and am not looking forward to this Wednesday--cause this girl has gotten used to this relaxed schedule! I hope your day back goes well--we start the year with a brand new electronic medical records system--can you say "stress much?" Your navajo blanket is stunning and unique looking --perfect for a state fair entry.
Happy New Years~~~

Cris said...

Ohhh I wish you the best possible, lowest stress return as possible! New systems aren't fun... new systems after 2 weeks of work are less fun hehehe

Cris said...

And to you, Marie! Happy New Year!!!

Cris said...

I have definitely enjoyed my time off - I am hoping to ease back into things but I'm sure it'll be a whirlwind!

Cris said...

Thank you! I don't know about "missing" work but I know I'm not going to enjoy the loads of work waiting for me.

Cris said...

Oh I don't know about that but I do like to try! :) Happy New Year Florence!!!!

The blanket looks amazing, I think it will be a perfect state fair entry. And your project total is amazing for only being 6 months in, you must knit like the wind. Happy New Year!
