May OMG

 I re-discovered this top, from December 2018:


My OMG is to quilt it, and make it into a pillow.

January OMG - done

 I knitted and knitted my strip, but then I decided to stop making this blanket.


I don't like how I'm joining the strips, so I am going to push pause and reassess.

November OMG - Lisa Frank yarn strip

It's been a while since I posted here for my One Monthly Goal: I will knit at least 5 feet by the end of the month.  Here is the link to the OMG party, hosted Patty of Elm Street Quilts.  


I have knitted and sewn together 4 strips so far, so my blanket is x by x.


I'd like to get back on track to have it done by my birthday in April, so I cast on 36 stitches in this bright shade called Lisa Frank:

May OMG - done

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!
