On Nnenna’s Needles #25

It’s been too long since my last On Nnenna’s Needles post!  With all the craziness of finding an apartment and moving, I wasn’t knitting too much, but I have made some progress on the blanket from this post.  I really love the way that the various shades of blue look together and I can’t wait until this is a full-length blanket!  This project has been put on hold for a while because I’ve been working on the knit tank that Whitney won in my blog birthday giveaway.  I’m hoping to send it to her within the week!

Also, this picture that I added to Pinterest is making me crave my next tattoo!

  7. That tattoo is crazy! The detail is amazing. I used to be able to crochet but am a little rusty. I have this perfect scarf envisioned but have been unable to locate it in a store. I might be up to me! :)

  9. I wish I had the patience to knit a blanket, but I can barely get a scarf done (and put it down for months at a time). Can’t wait to see how it turns out!

  13. I am always impressed by those who can sew, crochet, and knit. I am not very handy and when people are able to make their own, I am always impressed. So glad you are getting settled into a new place! That blanket is gorgeous!
