My own private Alaska

For the last month or so, on this coast and that, back and forth, I have been working on a blanket of snow that reminds me of tundra and northern lights.



This is Markku's baptismal blanket. It's a bit over halfway finished. Did I mention that his mother is having a baby shower thrown for her two weeks from today? And that's when I should be giving her this blanket in preparation for Markku? Yeah. I'm now kicking into knitting overdrive. Oh, and there's a hood to add as well.

At least I'm over the hump--the whole thing is knit on the bias and so the halfway point is also the slowest-feeling point because the rows are the widest. Now I can feel myself gaining momentum as the rows become shorter and go by more quickly.

Besides, I have something to look forward to.



Please excuse me now while I drool on the yarn. I should wash it off though, before using this to make Rianne's birthday present.

There! Just a little issue with my FTP software.

you've got the yarn (oh, and it's gorgeous!) but not the first image (of the northern lights, maybe?)

Hmm, it seems to work fine for me, but I did go back and tweaked the HTML...is it working for you now?

It's Manos del Uruguay, color 115. Yummy stuff, I would recommend it! More coming soon as I'm almost finished with the birthday present.
