WIP Wednesday - Midnight Madness

I am once again a night dweller for work and my days and nights are all mixed up.  I am annoyed that I missed WIP Wednesday last week and had really good intentions to update you but unfortunately that didn't pan out.  I have been busy though since during work I can craft while answering calls so I have lots to share.

Alas, I didn't get a group shot this week but here is the individual progress.

LEGO Block Blanket

Sample of the blocks created

I have 20 of the Green blocks done 18 of the Blue blocks done and 13 of the Red Blocks done.  Just 2 more Blue to make, 7 more red and 21 yellow.  I have taken a bit of a break because I am blocked out but I am so close to finishing this blanket.

 Gryffindor Scarf

So much progress on the scarf!

I got so much done on the scarf and I think it is going to be really awesome!  This has been an easy go to project to do while working.

White Centered Granny Square Blanket

Isn't the Teal and Gold pretty?
I got some of the White Centered Grannies done.  I love these and they look so nice together.  I really love using Debbie Bliss Cashmerino.

Short Row Toe and Heel Basic Socks

I really like making Toe Up Socks
These are my first toe up socks and they are going fairly well.  I am pleased at how they are turning out. I had a false start but then figured out what the directions were saying and am now at the foot for rounds and rounds of stockinette.

Aquaman Square

It's a little hard to tell but there is the bottom of the A.
So, I was inspired by The Big Bang Theory Show, Episode 11, Season 4  The Justice League Recombination.  The premise is that the gang all go to a New Year's Eve party at a local comic book store dressed as the Justice League of America.  It was recently re-broadcast and an idea struck to make a blanket with all of the super hero characters that were portrayed.

Well needless to say, I think this blanket is going to be Super!  I hope to publish the charts when I (and my wonderful test knitters) are done with the first rounds to make sure the chart turns out the way I expect.  Stay Tuned for the progress of this and other squares.  Oh can you tell how excited I am!
