It's the blanket I am making for the baby! It is preventing me from cuddling their first born! Did I mention that she is about 5-6 weeks old? No? Well, she is!
Does anyone else do this? I mean the I-can't-visit-the-baby-until-I-finish-the blanket thing. I mean, they live right. next. door. I've thought of visiting them and telling them I'm making something for the baby that is not quite finished yet. Then I think no, I want to have a gift with me when I see her for the first time. You can see, given world events, just exactly how Earth shaking this is! Now I'm thinking--knit faster!!
And then, there's the other problem I have as I close-in on completing an item: I find something that I dislike about it. Ev-er-y time! My original idea about the color for this was to use the girlie-pink as the main color along with the other pastels, add a couple stronger colors for visual stimulation, and there's my baby blanket!! Although I like the lime and purple, I am now thinking--oh my! Those are bright!
This Rambling Rows ghan is fun to knit-- just wishing I were completing it a little faster! I am working on patch #36 of 46 total patches. Darn! I can see in these pics that some of the slanted lines are at the wrong angle! There was a time I would have ripped and redone, however that time is not now!
The Caron "Simply Soft" is nice to work with and good for tossing in the washer and dryer. So, instead of typing-typing, I'd best start knitting-knitting with my size 8s.
A cheerful look brings joy to the heart, and good news gives health to the bones. --- Proverbs 15:30
