A patriotic baby blanket is what I have been working on lately. I have 3 skeins of Red Heart's Stars and Stripes yarn that I didn't know what to do with so I figured that something small like a baby blanket would work. I'm hoping I will have enough yarn to finish. I'm using the One Skein Baby Blanket pattern. I'm using smaller skeins that almost equal a One Pounder like the pattern suggests. Now my husband looked at me strangely when I showed him what I was making but I figure that living on a military base there has to be at least one person out there that would love a red, white, and blue baby afghan.
Thank you everyone for the nice comments you have left on my blog. It's reassuring to know there are still wonderful people out there in the world. Lately, I've been so frustrated with some of the people in this community. I guess I took it for granted that if you are in adult you act like one. Maybe I'm just lucky that all of the people I know back home treat others with respect and are kind, wonderful people. I'm just not used to being around people that are so unhappy with their lives that all they want to do is sit around and gossip about others. I hope in Hawaii things will be a little different and we will have the opportunity to meet more people that aren't in the military. For me, I just don't think it's mentally healthy to only be around the people you work with all the time. For civilians, can you imagine working and then having to go home and always be surrounded by your coworkers? Yes, they don't live inside your house but you will see them all the time wherever you go on base. Have you figured out why my husband and I like to get out and travel as much as possible?
Alright enough of my pity party. I just needed to vent my frustrations.
