Self-Portrait Sunday

It's Self-Portrait Sunday and today I give you a rather unflattering picture of myself. But hey, it's the real me, I guess. I'm working on the so-called "4 1/2 Hour Baby Blanket" with the biggest needles known to mankind. Size 50!! You work 4 strands of Homespun together. Of course, I ran out of one color and am almost out of another color, so off to Michael's I went this morning...anyhoo, here's the picture:

Otherwise, the in-laws left yesterday, Natalie and Ethan still aren't 100%, but are feeling better, I got my Knitting Olympics yarn situation sorted out, got a ball winder and I'm still knitting.

I knew those needles were big, but HOLY MONKEY those really look enormous!

I hope you get it done soon :)

I have a pair of 50's, but have never used them because I've never seen a pattern that called for such large needles! Thanks for the idea--it looks fun.

Yay for ball winders and happy yarn situations!! :) And I love the colors you're using for your Big Honkin' Needles Blanket (as that pattern is known in our house) - yours is MUCH happier than mine!!
