2 things

I put the pompom in that - now even uglier!  I love this thing.  
My new favorite addition to my wardrobe - a heavier duty knee brace 
Yeah, that's a lot of Velcro but it works!

How big should a lap blanket be?

I'm thinking 12 squares, 3 x 4. I'm not sure if I have enough yarn.  I think I need one more skein of the red.  I don't like the tan pattern rounds- better to have them all red.

Finishing Tympany

First, I just done with a conference and got to see some colleagues from where we used to work - it was great.  Got to introduce them to current colleagues and we all had lunch - the most work fun I've had in a long time. 
But now it's the weekend. 
So, Larry's hat needed a pompom.  I finally Googled how to make one and here it is ...
Everyone loves pompous!

Long time

So, the Blogger app was getting buggy and not wanting to load pictures, so I got out of the habit. Let me try and restart. 
At work, we do monthly displays relating to the law, or law libraries, or whatever.  It was my turn. I did copyright law and knitwear design.  I put a 10 minute slideshow on title 17 and the history of knitting and got our knitting group to donate their work. 
It's been really popular- shockingly so. With guys, too.
