yarn diet, I can't help it. When yarn runs out, I run to another project. This time, it's a knitting project and it's for me. It had been so long since the last knit that it took forever to remember how to cast on, but I finally got something arranged and I moved on. (I was out of town and no where near a computer at the time.) The project is 50% done and I couldn't be happier. I'm using a super chunky yarn so naturally it's moving along faster, but I'm proud that my stitches have improved. Too bad I can't fix that cast-on row, but that's okay. I hope to be finished shortly.
Yes, I'm still crocheting the blanket. Surprisingly the yarn still hasn't run out, but I see the purple nearing it's end. Since it's the first color in each new section and used the most, I've been almost holding my breath and then getting all giddy when there's enough to keep going because I know then that I can finish that entire section. I probably look ridiculous doing so or even talking about it, but interestingly enough it doesn't matter because anybody reading this post understands. lol
