Our Oddball knitting group was challenged to do a Superheo blanket. Maybe it's because I have two boys but when I read it, I really wanted to have my section include a 'logo' for a superhero rather than just colors to represent a certain character. I settled on Batman so I searched for patterns and found this one. Next, I had to learn how to knit with different colors in a pattern...yeah, I'm really going all out here. I was the second knitter on this blanket, it arrived at my house and the first section was a beautiful red, white and blue to represent Captain America. I had this blanket in my possession a little longer than most of the blankets I work on because I was searching for the perfect pattern and had to learn (and hence practice several times) a new technique before adding it to this project. Once I had it all figured out, I went to town on this blanket and it really didn't take that long to whip it out.

After I was done, I had loads of ends that I needed to weave in:

Overall I'm really happy with my section. I put a lot of time and effort into it and, while it is far from perfect, I'm proud of myself for taking the time to learn a new technique and spending time to make this a wonderful blanket for some lucky little boy (I'm assuming it will go to a boy, though I suppose some girls might appreciate it too).

Enjoy your Saturday. I'm getting my hair "did" and looking forward to a new cut and color!!!!
