Another thing that is on the sewing needle (get what I did there?) is a Minnie blanket. I'm thinking we might save it for Christmas. Although it's also super-simple, fleece with blanket-binding run around the sides, I've run into a bit of a dilemma. Maybe you all can help. I didn't pick up enough blanket binding so I went back yesterday. Well, I didn't bring the blanket so naturally I bought the wrong pink blanket binding, its too bright. After getting home I'm thinking they didn't have the right pink and my JoAnn's is currently having a closing sale because they have a new store opening up so they won't get it back in. The new one doesn't open till November and I also really don't want to pay shipping (plus I can't color match well on the computer anyhow). So here's my train of thought. Could I do half the blanket with the one pink and the other half with the brighter pink? There are bright and light pink stripes in the background of the blanket. I'd love your opinions on this matter. I really don't want to wait till November to finish it, even if it is a Christmas present.
also been reading a few books. Just finished up The Yarn Harlot: Secret Life of a Knitter and listened to The 1st to Die by James Patterson (FINALLY). I have most of the series in paperback but wouldn't start them till I read #1 in the series. It was excellent and I will read more!
