The great blanket project is almost complete.
Yet it has been stalled due to weather.................. yes! the pacific Northwest has actually had some warm weather this past week, and the blanket has been too hot to sit on my lap. Hah! (I am NOT complaining!!)
I have knit three of the side borders on the blanket, and am half done with the fourth - so only the four small corners and weaving in a couple ends and final blocking remain.... I shall not tease you with photos.... she's a stunner. that's all I have to say.
The mother to be is my dental hygienist, and an all around fabulous gal.
It's her first baby, and she was telling me (a couple months ago) that she wanted to " dress her newborn in 'non-traditional colors', you know, like neon green and dark purple".hah!
So I took her at her word, and found just such lovelies, and commenced the knit.(fingers crossed that when I deliver these gifts to her next month that she has not changed her mind.or at the very least, it will make her smile!)
The yarn is Encore acrylic/wool blend
the pattern is fabulous Debby Bliss,
Baby Knits for Beginners
buttons are bumble bees (yeah.. totally adorable)and am finishing up a rolled rim hat to match as we speak.
Now I shall go and weave in all those pesky little ends.
Baby knits = fast gratification for the knitter.
And the ever so brief, flash update for those following the health saga is that I am done with all three of the antibiotics, and for the moment, it seems to have killed most of the bad guy germs (yipppee). and now on about 4 other medicines to respond to the various other symptoms. - and so far, I think I can safely say, that I am whopping that beast of a germ. (modest celebratory giggle dance all around... and thus the fairy dust sprinkles)
vacation in 6 days.... gosh.. I can hardly wait.
