A few months ago, my friend Jill had her baby and from all the things that I could knit for them, she requested little hats. Here is living proof that I do knit, she just emailed me these pictures and I couldn't wait to show you....He looks so beautiful! The pattern is the Bundle of Joy (raverly link)
Currently on the needles: a baby blanket for another baby. My friends just keep having babies left and right....they claim that it is the only way I knit anything for them. I think, I am going to have to make them something for this upcoming Christmas.
The pattern for the blanket comes from the new Debbie Bliss magazine. When I first saw the blanket, I knew that I had to make it. I casted on for it this week, probably on Wednesday and about 10 rows into it, realized that it was way too small, about 19 inches in width! So I ripped it and increased it 50%. At the time, I was extremelly pleased with the size, but now that I am knitting, it seems that it is going to take forever...especially since the blanket has two sides...and I am barely 1/3 into the first side. Oi! It is going to take me forever...especially since I am down to knitting about 1 hour every other day.
I can't show you pics of the baby blanket though, my friend stops by the blog every now and then and I want to surprise her....she is due in about a month...I better start knitting.
Looming Updates: the Buttoned Up hat will probably be ready by the end of the week. Keep your eyes open. Also, some new loom knitting videos have been made, check out the DA Blog for them or by going to the DA website.
Work: I am loving it. I love being able to have some "alone" time and contribute to the household income...alright so the fact that I spend it doesn't really count, lol. Although I am loving my job, I don't know if I will be staying there long. Hubby is looking into a new job and if he does get it (which we are hoping he does), he will have to travel out of the state every other week.
Braces: Oi....let's not talk about it. It has only been 2 months...I still have 16 more!
