May OMG - done

Linking up with our host, Patty of Elm Street Quilts.

I finished the happy pinks and purples back on the 17th or 18th, but I got distracted, as usual.  I'm working on the next strip, but it isn't as exciting as these bright colors:

May OMG - pink+purple stripes

My OMG for this month is to knit this lovely pink+purple yarn into one long strip about 72" long, or until I run out of yarn...  Someday it will be a blanket!   Linking up with our host, Patty of Elm Street Quilts.

April OMG - done!

I finished the colored rows a few weeks ago.  Since then I've darned in most of the ends and now I'm working on the black border.

April OMG - stripes

(I am pretty sure) I began this blanket in April of 2014.   I am almost ready to call it finished.

I am currently adding grays for the cloudy skies and the confusion that hang over me.  I finished the obnoxiously bright rainbow surrounded by blues for sadness and tears to say good-bye to my brother.  He hung himself on 27 March.  When my grandmother (mother's side) passed away in December of 2014, I had just begun my Cosy Stripe (but in rainbow order) and I had seen a lovely rainbow over Monterey Bay, so now I think of rainbows as a way for souls to get to the other side.

My OMG, hosted by Patty of Elm Street Quilts, is to add more colored stripes so that it feels done...  I know I want the sun to break through the gray clouds, and it needs some more purple!

January OMG

I did not like the way my hexi-flowers for the Kingfisher QAL came out.  How was that 18 months ago...?!?

Frustration lives in the space between expectation and reality.
I am going to re-imagine them as a cover for my Kindle.  My OMG is to piece together two 5x7'' ish* bits (or all one piece?).  This is what I started last night:

*because seam allowances do matter if you want things to fit...

July OMG - done...!

Ends are darned in:

Still more to knit.  I found some nice blues to add.

July OMG - grey/purple/blue stripes

This blanket has grown a bit since I began it in January 2018 (ish)  This month I will darn in the ends!

I made some progress already:
