No Foolin' Around

I'm not a big "April Fools" kind of person so there will be none of those "shenanigans" here today.  Just straight up progress to report!

Firstly, April's hat is finished-I thought it best to get ahead on it, since I want to devote this month to the new blanket!

Secondly, I spent the week happily knitting a little on the stripey stocking knit stitch blanket and was quite content!

I added 6 color bands to the project and it now sits at 21 inches.  Here's the dilema- I'm almost entirely out of the dark blue color, and am periously close to running out of the light purple.  I have another light purple that I could sub in, without much change, but the only darker blue I have is significantly different.  How badly are the different colors going to bother me?  I like being able to continue to stash down what's in the blanket- but I don't want to make it look awful either.  GAH- there's so much to worry about.  (And no, I will not buy a new skein to make up the issue- the point is to STASH DOWN.  The only exception to the rule will be more yellow- b/c once I run out of yellow- I'll need to keep that cohesive.)  I guess I won't worry about it for now, because this blanket goes back into the waiting spot while I begin anew.

I wound the balls for the Stampede mystery project today.  Such perfectly springy colors to knit with for spring!

Know what it is yet?  Hopefully it will start taking shape soon- I'm going to cast on as soon as this post is up!  I'm really excited!
