A couple of weeks ago I showed you all a new blanket I've been knitting up (you can see my start here). I had to put it aside for a little bit because the color I'd intended to use for the second strip was way too white and clashed with the colors. I placed the order for another color, it arrived, it was perfect, and we were back in business!
So here's the second strip all knitted up:
For this second strip, I used Red Heart's Super Saver in Cherry Chip (the mixed-color yarn) and Buff (a lovely beige that matched the Cherry Chip much better than the White did). And here are the two strips so far attached:
I'm doing this gingham-style, as you can see, so the third strip will be identical to the first, and the fourth identical to the second, and so on until I'm satisfied with the length. What do you guys think?
On a completely different note, I've started yoga! Yay! Very proud of myself. I've never had any real weight issues, but I've recently found out that I do have a health issue that's messing with my reproductive system, so I've been consciously trying to be healthier. I found this amazing 30-day yoga challenge video series on YouTube. Today is day 2 for me, and I can already feel it in my abs. Very motivated and can't wait to keep going with this! Motivation has always been the problem for me, as I tend to get bored and lazy very easily. Hopefully that doesn't happen this time!
Big healthy hugs,
