Progress

Things are progressing well on all fronts for me right now. I have some super exciting news that I can hopefully share soon, but I don't really want to jinx anything right now.
Weightwise, I've lost five pounds so far (2 weeks), so that's good. I just have to keep going and going with it.
Knittingwise, I've finished (and seamed!) the first strip of Eleanor's blanket. One down, six to go! I started on the second last night. While seaming that strip together, I thought of not one, but two ways I could have done this differently to make it easier. I could have knit the strips as five big pieces and just had four seams to sew, or hey!, I could have used intarsia and done one big piece. Oh well.

Congrats on the weight loss!

Can't you just do the rest of the blanket in long strips? Or would the color changes show too much?

I guess I could do that, but as much as I complain about the seaming, I do like the portability of small squares.
