Recently, life has managed to get in the way of my knitting. It seems like I have been running from one task to another and not getting much done. Last weekend, I was busy getting ready for the Wyoming Pulmonary Hypertension Support Group meeting, and this week, I hustled to get the group newsletter ready for publication and distribution. (I'll write more about this group later.) I've met three friends this week for two separate luncheons, and begged out of a quilting group gathering today. My laundry piles are high, I have dishes in the sink, the floors need vacuumed and the furniture dusted. I needed to stay home and get something done.
In between all of this activity, I knit on an Oddball Baby Blanket and an Oddball Shawl. Angel Wings made its return visit, and I added another section. The Oddball Baby Blanket, Tropical Plantation, was started by a lady in Hawaii. She used the bright pink, which reminded her of a Hawaiian flower. I added the lime because it was the only color I had in my stash that resembled the tropics. I rarely purchase yarns to work on these projects because the reason I joined the group was to decrease some of my stash. So far, I have been successful in finding a yarn that coordinates with the theme of the shawls or blankets.
Update: November 2, 2008
Tropical Plantation is finished.
