I'm not sorry I had a brief vacation, but I do seem to have missed quite a bit around here.

About, oh, six months ago or so, I posted regarding the lessons my first lace project were teaching me. As I recall, MMario chastised me at the time for not posting any pictures.

...but the desire to knit continues.

After finishing the Christmas knitting, my wife has corralled me into doing a couple of baby blankets for friends who are expecting. Funny how she's gone from skepticism and sometimes outright mockery when I first picked up needles to now drafting me for any gift which presents itself.
In any event, a picture of the WIP is attached (I must get a camera that takes clearer pictures rather than doing this with my cell phone), and working on it has taught me a few things (and doesn't any worthwhiile project teach us something?):

After getting my Christmas knitting pretty much wrapped up, I was talking with my wife, and she asked if I was going to take a break from knitting, or what my next project was going to be.

Thanks to all, especially Tallguy, for your support during my blocking ordeal. Everything turned out beautifully.

Is there a rough estimate as to how much a piece will "grow" when blocked?

A few months ago, when I was first picking up needles, discovering this site, and posting with complaints that I couldn't even cast on, much less knit anything, a few guys here had done this scarf. I remember looking at pictures thinking how incredible to be able to make something so beautiful, and not thinking I would ever be able to do that (as I couldn't even cast on, much less knit anything).
