Update on the Blanket

No, these are not the best pictures in the world, they're pretty blurry and I couldn't manage to fit the entire blanket into the frame on my phone this morning, but that's cause the blanket has gotten SO BIG!
On Saturday morning I was convinced that I would get it finished this past weekend, or at least be down to the border to be working on at night this week. Didn't quite happen though, I have 2 1/2 rounds to go before extending 2 opposing sides and then starting the 3 round border.
The only time I really got a chance to work on it was Saturday morning early and then while the girls were over for Crafty Saturday. Of course with other people there it became a lot of chatting and what was on TV and snacks to keep us satisfied until Duck at 8 so I didn't get as much done as I had hoped. I did learn a new knitting stitch from Heather which I am looking forward to trying. I've actually already thought of what yarn I have and want to use for this scarf, I just have to find it and the right size knitting needles......should also probably try and finish the above blanket first too!
If I was just making a lap blanket I would totally be done, it's gotten so big and it's getting to be a bit cumbersome to have sitting on my lap. At this point I truly just want to get it done and I know that in the future I will probably only make blankets with a standard "back and forth" pattern, or I will be making many Granny squares and connecting them all at the end!
I think I'll be able to wrap this guy up by the weekend, or end of the weekend. I have 3 plastic canvas projects (2 for Valentine's Day) that I'm also working on as well as trying to maintain my focus to not start one of the other 4 blankets I've been designing in my head, or that knit scarf! This truly is my downfall with getting projects finished, I have too many things I want to make, too many new ideas in my head, and NEVER enough time to get them all done!
I will post a finished picture of the blanket by the end of this coming weekend, I'm gonna really work towards that being my deadline......hopefully I'll ever get some other things finished up during the week/weekend too :-)
