Overdue blanket

In the last couple of weeks or so I've been motivated to pick up all my nearly done knitting projects and finish them up! This one was first because this weekend I'll be seeing the receiver of this very very late gift. I think I promised it to her 3 years ago. I know, so embarrassing, right? Better late than never I guess! I hope she likes it.


























I ran out of yarn with just a few yards to go and really didn't want to buy another ball. So I found some yarn that was close in gauge - hence the red corner. I was almost too lazy to block it but am glad I did because it does look neater than before.
















We're heading up to Tahoe this weekend with some friends, and I'm super excited because instead of skiing and boarding like everyone else I am staying in the cabin! I've decided that I'm done with snow sports, and I found a *really* cute little project to work on during the day. It's something I've never done before, so we'll see if I can do it!
