Well, the damage from the blanket fire has more or less been taken care of. What you see here is the Spincycle replacement square - the center color is Shades of Earth.
I'd been worried about running out of Noro for the borders, but the nice thing about traveling all the time is that every week you get a new LYS. For Yarn's Sake in Beaverton, Oregon (just outside of Portland) had everything I needed to restock on my dwindling Noro supplies.
I'm afraid that there won't be too many updates on the blanket anytime soon, as there's so.much,garter.stitch. It's basically becoming my "bored in the car" knitting. Ocassionally we go to the movies, and I usually get a few rows done there as well. But fear not, as there's plenty of knitting still going on here! More on that soon.
