I am now entering week 4 of bronchitis. I tried to go back to work on monday and stayed for about 40 minutes. My body was yelling at me and throwing fits. If I hadn't left it was threatening to shut down on me. So back to the dr.s I went. Yep it either came back or never left. New antibiotic that is pretty strong, inhaler and nebulizer too. I do feel better. Fingers crossed this works since if it does not there is not much less she can do for me and off to the hospital I will go.
Anyway I have been able to work on my Stepson blanket. It all start about a year ago. He finally asked if I could make him something (he thought I would say no) and I said of course what would he like. We settled on a blanket with Mets colors (blue, orange and white). I took him to the store and he picked the yarn.
It started as a log cabin then it was changed to a modular design. 12 squares, each 3 color randomly changed (loved that part - no counting and did not have to make them match). I have finished 10 and I am half way done with number 11.
Then I will sew all the squares together (randomly), pick up and knit a border. This is the part I am dreading. I will be picking up 123 +163+123+163=572 stitches to start. I want to knit it garter stitch so it will not curl but I just can not see myself purling at least 572 stitches. To solve this I am going to pick a spot and knit around to it then turn and knit back around. I will have a tiny seam to sew but it will be worth not purling. Yeah!! Then I will sew onto the back some flannel and this solves the sewing in a million ends. Double Yeah!!
Here is my progress:

I am off to finish number 11. His birthday is 2/14 and I promised him he would have it for his birthday.
