As much as one can call garter stitch intriguing. Still, one does periodically change colors on a log cabin and then oooh, it's a new color. See how it's working with the others!
Finding joy in the changing of colors keeps a hedgehog going...
But after Week 1 of Blanket 1 I am thru Rectangle 7 for the Mason Dixon Moderne Baby Blanket. And it's reaching the point that it has become unwieldy for train knitting. That's quite acceptable in my mind for a weeks' worth of work; I'm somewhere in the 700+ yards knit. So I'm starting Blanket 2 tonight.
I can't decide if this is delightful or demoralizing. On one hand, colors I haven't used before! On the other, didn't I *just* plow through this rectangle? Aren't I done with it? I'm hoping to stay distracted by the colors long enough that I'll not notice it too much. Blanket 1 has been relegated to couch knitting, at least temporarily.
We don't have any trips coming up for the next month, so I don't have any flight knitting to worry about. But also that means no great swaths of knitting time on a plane.
It's a good thing I have that long commute and some long meetings.
At this rate, maybe I could have both of them done by mid-March? That'd be phenomenal.
