Do you know the number for the crazy police?

Hey guys, how's it going? Pretty good here, just been knitting (No way! Knitting, you say! Weird!) This is just going to be a short post (I think I got ya covered with the long posts...) but I wanted to let you know what I was up to. First off, last night I started the gussets on my loksins sock (Thank goodness!!!)

Whoa, a picture that actually looks like the right color red... what's up with that? Ok, remember these conditions, cloudy, snowy day, no lights in the computer room around 2 in the afternoon, just the computer monitor on, auto flash, close up. Ok, now I'm rereading that and I realize that you all must think I'm completely nuts. Oh well. :)

Then, I've also been working on this.

It's my pinwheel baby blanket! I've decided to have the colors fade out as it goes, instead of stripes. (Did I mention I was going to do stripes? No? Huh.) Anyway, I started with the darker blue, now I'm working with the lighter blue, then I'm going to do the outside with white. And... brace yourselves... I'm thinking about doing a crocheted edging. I know, I've gone over to the dark side... but I think I'm going to do it in the same blue color that's in the middle, to draw it all in. What do you all think? Or maybe I should do the light blue... hmm... I'm not sure! It's diameter is 15 inches, so I'm halfway done or so! :)

How was everyone's weekend? Thanks for stopping by!

socks are looking good. I am working on the gusset of double eyelet, I think I could finish it tonight after Girl Scouts. I did finish the fetchings. I think I may give these to my friend Cheryl and do Evangeline from Mag Knits for myself. We'll see. I often crochet to edge things, it will look nice. You could do a round of the light blue then of the dark blue for the sounds interesting. Thanks for the well wishes, I am feeling a bit better today. Off to get Giggles.

My weekend was pretty good, thanks for asking! I finally got some good solid knitting time in. Your blanket looks fantastic! I like your idea about doing the outside edging in the same color as the middle.

Great work on getting a red picture!
