What's the Haps, yo?

Last night I started the Hap blanket. This is a ridiculously fast knit as I've worked on the thing for approximately two hours and I'm nearly done with the garter stitch center section. Here are some photos:

(for the record, the green in the picture still isn't right. But at least this is closer.)

And here's a shot of the Lettuce Pullover looking more pullovery:

I'm getting close to starting the seemingly interminable five inches of 1x1 rib at the bottom. Ugh.

However, I ADORE this yarn, and I can't wait to wear the sweater.


  1. I can't wait to see what you think of the blanket! I have the yarn for it, and I was worried I wouldn't be able to get through all of that garter sitch!

  2. Wow, that is REALLY not the right color. The blanket is so much richer.

  3. I love the look of 1 x 1 ribbing, but it is tedious to knit. Still, it'll be worth it!

    I'm enjoying watching your hap blanket take shape.

  4. I'll bet the pretty yarn (and maybe a good movie) make the ribbing go quickly. I love simple squishy knits like the hap blanket!

  5. Ooh, that orange is gorgeous! And I'm not even a huge fan of the color. lol
