I figured I'd post my progress so far...



Between the 2 sick kids and the shawl I made for the MIL, I've not gotten far, obviously.  I'm thinking a couple more rows, then do the half blocks (I have to read the pattern again) around the edge.  I'm thinking around crib blanket size.  As much as I loved a few of my large baby blankets, they were too unwieldy to actually use while out and about.

That came out great!  It looks like it's a pretty good size too.

i'll join in the new year right so except to see progress photos from me in 09! Wink
I'll be looking forward to seeing it.  I just started back on mine.  I needed to finish a shawl for the MIL, so a December due date trumped the March one.  I think 2 more rows and I'll be finished, but I'll know when I get there.  I really like the weight of this blanket...it's solid enough to keep the cold out, but not too heavy.  I'm really wanting to get it in the washer and see how it loosens up.  I'll post progress pics/finished pics soon.

How fast you were!  I'm dealing with sick kids, so I haven't done much on mine this week.  I can't wait to see yours!

I'm in! I saw the post a few days ago and started yesterday. Currently tucking ends from row 2. Pics to come when I'm not stuck in a box at work.
Awesome:)  I can't wait to see it.  It's really much easier than it looks, right?

Just an update on the blanket.  Row 3 is complete, and row 4 has been started.



I was doing this one complete block at a time, but I'm going to switch, doing all the purple first across, then the pink, then the black.  It might save a little frustration.Smiley

I'm all for a "Jump in Anytime" CAL.  I'm not going to put an end date on this, especially since the Holidays are around the corner, and who knows how much time we all will have. 

Start date: October 18, 2008 (date of the first post here)

This is from my Ravelry project list, so it's worded oddly:)
************************************************
Really? I was afraid to try this???

This is super simple, but man oh man, it looks difficult. The diamonds consist of 3 rows, and once you memorize the pattern (and that took all of 4-5 diamonds for me), its smooth sailing. I can do one block in about 15 minutes, but Ive been pretty lazy about working on this.

That looks great! the pattern looks soo hard though, i wish i could do it. are you basically doing granny squares?

Just basic granny squares, ummm, diamonds:)  And it's join as you go, which, for me, alleviates some of the confusion that would come if I had to put it together after all were done.

Now, originally I was going to do a round ripple with this yarn, but I really did not like how it was coming out, so I though I would try this one. If you look at the pattern, the lightest color should be on the top of the blocks, but I started with the purple, and it looks fine. I really like the way that the colors are coming together.
The mom that this is going to is a bit of a girlie-girl, but shes got a bit of a dark side, so the colors are perfect.
