I usually avoid knitting blankets because I don't like to work with such a large number of stitches, plus I'm in to the whole instant gratification thing (or as instant as you can get with knitting) and blankets take forever. But this one is gratifying in a different way because I get to sit and think about the bun as I knit and send her my love with every stitch.

Speaking of blankets, I don't sew, but I'm a big fan of quilts and love these Courthouse Steps mini-quilts from The Purl Bee. The shades of orange, blue and grey look so nice together-- who'd have thought? I never would have put those colors together.
