I've been back in the states for about a month and in that month just about everything in my life has changed...some good, some bad. I got promoted to department head when my former department head retired at the beginning of July. My son packed up his room and went on a road trip with his mom before he leaves for college next month. I have packed up my room to move out of a loveless relationship: my little boy is now a little man and living on his own, so I can do it, too.
But my primary purpose for posting. Sam has asked me to make him a blanket for the bed in his dorm room. I have never made a blanket and definitely haven't made one an 18yo boy (ok, young man) would like. All the patterns I have found have been too frilly or just not Sam at all. Any ideas where to look other than Ravelry?
