    Deployment blanket.

    Im finishing the whipsitching on the last of the strips now. Ill have about three blankets. They are lovely and warm. I use the first one now as a couch blanket to cuddle with, the second is used mostly by my daughter, and the dogs. The hat blanket is very pretty, but sadly my daughter wouldnt like it. the more designs in the blanket the more happy she is. She likes them kinda everywhere. She really likes to see a much of different things that I can make up, so I gotta find something more along those lines, great idea tho. My mom might like that blanket, and I have a chest (small of course) full of scrap yarn, so maybe I can stitch that out and make something for her. No idea what at this point. Ive started a lavender summer shawl using the All shawl pattern, by Doris Chan. Im using baby yarn so its light but drapes nicely, and I had a solider make a request for a heart shaped pillow as well to sleep with. Mostly on the flights LOL. So I have little tasks, like he asked to keep me busy.

    Well ladies, after leave came, which he left on Easter Sunday I was informed that basically I have two months estimated of course and well he asked me to stop on the blanket, and work on other little things to keep me busy so I don't worry over the strips. So as requested ill be stopping. Thank you guys for staying with me through this, and all the wonderful encouragement. I'm excited that I'm almost done!!! Hard to believe I've made it this long!! Thank you again.

    Here we go! First up, Christmas colors, white and a verigrated red white green. Next, A Teal and golden yellow then we start the next month, which for me was a little dark, Jan, First Brown and purple then a bright! yellow and green, both pastels then its called berry something, I dunno, it was just really pretty with black. If you take a look, all of them look funny, some have extra boarder yarn as strips, because of short yarn, the Yellow has four rows (two at each end) of just plain green, ran out of Yellow, and the purple and brown has a SINGLE brown row LOL and the Mixed berry one has rows of duel thread of the verigrated yarn.

    Hello My lovely ladies!! Sorry for my lack of replies, but I have been working steadily on things. The good news is, I am on Christmas week. (I know Im behind still but getting better!!) I have Jan, and Feb yarn all bundled and set up ready to go in their pretty sets. The amazing part, I took a break from it. I think I was starting to loose hope with how large it was getting (I could barely move it, the weight alone was murder) so.... with the help of the exhusband, who said a break was a good idea, I got busy working on something else. I made Heart Pillows for my neighbor's daughter, my daughter, my ex husband, and one for me. The break gave me time to think. In the process of thinking, I AM READY TO get to work again. Change one. I have broken the blanket down. Yes....:Cries: My monster of a blanket is now....two blankets. I have one more row of the pretty thanksgiving yarn. once I figure out why they arent balancing, Ill show you the smaller pictures. My Idea was...lets break them down into three month sections, or...twelve week breaks...but that really isnt working...dont ask me why. but they arent coming out very even. I have thanksgiving week, but I need to put the last week of nov. on it...which puts it at thirteen. Its okay Ill figure it out. Next, Now that Im inspired to get back to work, Ill be back here, posting and getting back into the game of doing this. I was just running out of steam. I guess we all have that happen. you get so tired of them being gone....and being reminded that they are gone. Hollyz That blanket....is beautiful! I wish I could do ripple work, I never get it to actually ripple....Drives me insane. Im trying to think of an idea for all the scrap yarn this sucker is making. Any suggestions ladies? Matten thank you, You should try doing some amazing color combos, just grab two that look good, and stitch, after you do that, you'll go insane with wanting to play more. Sunflower, you better keep your eyes peeled.....because here shortly, I got strips for ya'll to see!! Thanks for staying with me during my lapse all of you...thank you. If nobody was following this, and wanting to see more, I probably would have stopped by now. Ill post pictures probably here in a little bit.

    Eee, sorry I didnt get my emails saying ya'll responded... After some hard thought, I figured I would break it up, I dunno how yet, but Im thinking, three months periods, or 12 strips per blanket, four sections for the four seasons. I dunno, Ill figure it out. A lot of troops just came home for Iraq, they had to be home before christmas, Obama's gift to military families I figured. Sadly, he wont be home for his Leave (R&R) until april, so 2 months away, and then of course I have another, oh say, 3 months there after for him to actually be home. Just the way it works I guess. I miss him horribly....but we have plans for leave which will be nice. Almost caught up ladies, I think Ill have some pictures posted soon. Sorry for all the delays...like I said...very strange household now that i have my daughter and ex husband here. My Ex husband get's bored easy watching TV and me crocheting. He wants me to get out more, and well I fall behind get mad and scream and yell. Which is oddly nice in its own way.

    Okay! Week 20, 21, 22, 23, 24. Im behind after this. by...quite a few weeks. the story as to why I havent been posting is my Exhusband, and Daughter has moved in with me due to some....issues with his landlord not paying her bills. With the two extra people, the house and all its chores has pretty much doubled quickly and Im barely finding a moment to sit down and stitch a line. But, I have put my foot down, and made it clear from now on! as my Christmas wish, I will get at least an hour a night to stitch...so I should be back like normal. My darling man is doing great, got a me a BRAND new kindle fire for Christmas...I squealed with delight at the thought. And A nightmare before Christmas skin for it. Once more, sorry for worrying ya'll Im okay! I SWEAR just been crazy busy keeping up with my 5 year old, and four dogs. plus my exhusband. And this deployment.

    Omg it's beautiful! I love it! Keep going I wanna see more! Just take your time, remember thus is a hobby about relaxing! Ohh he kidnapped it himself. Well that's okay at least it's getting used as something! The dogs might have liked their new bed, but a child loves a good blanket, so we gotta work it out somehow. Maybe a small stash buster for the puppies? Keep up the good work!
