Slowly But Surely

While the weather outside is to freaking cold to believe... (this is Lily playing outside on a warmer day at daycare). I had 2 bottles of wine in our mudroom last night and when the temperature dropped somewhere into the -20's the pressure of the frozen wine actually pushed the cork right out of one of the bottles.

I'm slowly making these skeins of yarn...

Into this blanket. It's the Rambling Rows Afghan I've told you about. Sorry, but you have to sign into Ravelry for that link. I can't find another picture of it that's not in black and white. It's a super easy pattern, just pick up stitches and then start decreasing at either one (for the squares) or two points (for the rectangles). I love that I can do a square or two and then set it down and work on something else for awhile. It fits my personality right now. Plus, the bigger the blanket grows, the more it keeps me warm while I'm working on it.

She is so adorable! I'm glad that you have the snow....sorry to hear about the wine cork incident but at least it was not pipes or anything major. The blanket looks great so far. Keep us posted!
