WIP Wednesday: Bias Knit Blanket

In this corner of the world, winter has come with it's full glory of snow and freezing temperatures. Brr... This weather always makes me want to curl up under a cozy blanket, drink tea and make all the yarn-y things in the world. This is the time of year when I stock up on new yarn and bust out my old stash to make a hat or two for dear friends. Lately, I've been swooning over all things knit. I need much practice in the knitting department. So when I picked these yarn from Michaels', I decided to make a knit lap blanket.

I just wanted to quickly show you how far I've gotten. I have two more skeins to go through. So far, I am quite pleased with how this is turning out. Come to think of it, this is actually my very first big knitting project. So, yay! I plan to write a more thorough post (what yarn did I use, what pattern I am following, etc.) when I am done with this blanket.

I almost always post a glimpse of my work in progress(es) on Instagram. So don't forget to follow me there. ●‿●

Flaming Sky

Every now and then, there are days when there is a sunset that makes you question everything and pushes you to the brink of existential crisis. Sunsets can be a bit depressing like that; reminding us of our mortality, fleeting time and darkness. Me, being the nostalgic kind, have always embraced the beauty and sadness of a sunset. Anyway, last weekend we had this awe-inspiring sunset! It looked like the whole sky was on fire. And every moment the sun descended more, the more the sky lit up. It was like an elaborate celebration than a gloomy goodbye. I like to think, these sunsets change people. Then again, I am also the romantic type. Have a great week, people!
