I started on this blanket, oh, about a year ago. Cae really wanted a rainbow blanket like I had knitted for Nuala, and so I had bought all the yarn (Cotlin from knitpicks), and started... then stalled,because honestly it is boring! Row after row after row of knitting 160+ stitches. But I picked it up again and have made some serious progress over the last couple weeks. I'm really getting in to it! Just three more colors to go. It won't be a huge blanket, more like a lap blanket, but it will be cozy and have a nice weight to it. The drape of the cotlin is wonderful.
I am currently rereading "How to Talk So Your Kids Will Listen & Listen So Your Kids Will Talk". I read it many many moons ago when my oldest and I were having struggles, now my newly minted teenage boy and I are butting heads, and I just need to be reminded on how to do this thing right. It is a great book.
