Dreary, gray days. Michigan has many, many of them, especially in the winter. The haziness can start to get you down. I find that this time of year I am drawn to bright, warm colors. This amazing, squishy, melon colored yarn (Swish Tonal Yarn from Knit Picks in Queen Anne colorway) that I'm currently working with helps bring some sunshine into the house.
I am working on the Pine Forest Baby Blanket available as a free download on Ravelry. My only mod is making it bigger to be a lap blanket. I CO 151 sts and am hoping my 5 skeins will give me enough length.
