my bland and mostly dull life with knitting thrown in for interest

Uh-Oh.....how to you say that in French?


Uhhhh...I was working on the Minimalist Cardigan, wasn't I? But my brain is constantly thinking "squares, squares, squares". Ever since the yarn came in for the Babette Blanket - it's all I want to work on. I'm not the fastest crocheter - but I'm making some progress. I'm working all the 4 row squares first (that's 49 of them!), then maybe I'll do some of the big ones.

I just found out I'm going to Paris with my hubby in March! How freakin' exciting is that? Hubby is teaching a 1 day course at the University of Paris and we've decided to take advantage of this opportunity and make it a trip for just the two of us. I am sooo excited. I've got to figure out what project(s) to bring with me! I could bring the squares - but I have 17 colors of yarn...that would be space consuming...maybe I could do socks...I do LOVE the Regia Galaxy yarn in Jupiter Anthrazit. I could do those - but something else too, I think...I'll have to check my queue and patterns on Ravelry!

"Merde" is a good all purpose word--I think. But you can ask M next monday night :)

That is such a fun blanket and each square is different. I can see how it's addicting.

I have a question about your Hugs & Kisses Cozy. In the pattern, it says to CO 18 st, but there are only 12 stitches in the cable repeat. What do you do with the remaining 6 stitches? I would to make this for my daughter's teacher, but I'm a little confuzzled here. I really would appreciate any help.

That trip sounds exciting! I find blanket squares to be really good for travel projects. They're small and easy to take with you.
