Blankets & babies

Leaving for Michigan trip in a few days, and these are 2 of the 3 projects already started for the ride:

A blanket I've decided to knit just using different blocks of stitch work from a 1970s knitting/crocheting stitch book. The construction of it is going to make no sense -- because I'm lazy and don't like connecting all the blocks afterward -- but basically I'm knitting the squares off of one another in a zig-zag.

I'm using the leftover from Yosemite (green), and then bought 2 other colors of the same yarn in blue and yellow. You can't really tell the color of the yellow in this picture.

Let's just say this is going to be one obnoxious blanket. And that I'm going to have to have a baby eventually in order to make this a useful item. Not just greyhound babies, either.

The Boheme I'm making for my roommate's niece/goddaughter. It's hard to photograph the true colors and stitch work of Homespun.
