1400 Yards of Pink Yarn is a LOT of Pink

So I'm still slogging my way through the pink blanketand while I'm going to finish it in plenty of time for the early March birthday, I've started dreaming in pink. That wouldn't be so bad, except that they tend to be Pepto-Bismal in nature...Oh well, it will be finished soon, and in the meantime, my subconscious has a coated, soothed, and relieved stomach.

And the big news of the day....

I found another copy of this pattern!I have instructions!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It turns out that I was getting things figured out fairly well, but I hadn't yet reached the whole front-gathering thing, or the strap thing, or anything that was actually complicated. What I had managed to do was to figure out the combination of pieces called "front," "side front," "back," and "side back." So, I might get to finish this up tomorrow while Theo naps.

Whew! Good thing to--it's supposed to be a whopping 48 degrees tomorrow. Heat Wave!!!!!!!!
