the Internet is my grandma

Oh my goodness, the Internet is like the most awesome grandma ever because it teaches you EVERYTHING about knitting and crocheting!  I just learned about the magic loop method in knitting, where you can just forget about the double pointed needles (which are so cumbersome to work with) and use a giant circular needle instead for all your tubular projects, even socks!  Why didn’t I find this out before I spent my money on 3 different sets of dpns?!  Check out this tutorial video:

Even with this exciting new discovery, I can’t forget my crocheting!  I’ve got a deadline on a filet crochet baby blanket.  I had to make the chart myself, so it’s not the best looking, but for a small baby blanket, what do you think?

Ok so I’m unsure why it looks so terrible once uploaded, but you get the drift, right?  It’ll be similar to the “Noah” blanket I made and put up a few posts ago.  The grey will be the filled in spaces and the white will be the lacy part.  I started at the bottom and am at the first row that has text blocks in it, so I’m about 1/3 of the way finished.  I need to get crackin’!  (And can you believe I’m getting paid for this?  I know, right?!)  I’ll post pictures once it looks good and is more interesting than just a couple of flowers.
