An update

This past week has been somewhat stressful. Work has been dramatic, school, more so. I'm teetering on the edge of dropping out. Well, dropping my co-op placement, at the very least.
In KNITTING NEWS! Not much...
I finished ONE measly dishcloth. I have a couple more on the needles, and they're making a little progress.
Still chugging along on the baby blankets. I haven't been working on the pink and white one very much. It's very warm, and so is the weather... Both together make for uncomfortable knitting. I did have to un-knit about 2 inches of the Ruffles blanket... I dropped a stitch, or did an unintentional m1 or SOMETHING and I had a big wonky bit.
My mom also informed me my cousin is pregnant with a baby girl... She wants me to knit her a baby blanket. This cousin is not blood related, but she's young (20, I think) and my mom bought the yarn. It's called Bernat Baby Blanket. It's super soft, and I'm assuming a JUMBO size of some of their regular yarn... Each skein is enough for a 29x29 blanket. I got 4: 2 girl colours, and 2 boy colours. Then, on the off chance she has a boy, I'm covered. Plus, I will have enough in case my mom's family decides to add more to the clan.
Put it this way: up until 5 years ago, my brother was the youngest of the grand children, and there were 2 younger great-grand children. There are now 3 more grand children, 4 great grand children and 2 more greats on the way. Nine babies in the span of about 5 years.

I think it's bed time. I will be posting pictures of all my baby blankets in progress in the next little bit. I HAVE MY CAMERA, but it eats batteries.

  1. Ahhhhhhhhh Nicole, Thanks for the comments on my blog..but dearheart...Listowel is on YOUR side of the river! And here I am jealous that you can go shop without worry of the border crossing!

    Oh, and can you belive that I've never been yarn shopping in Port Huron, even though I grew up very near there! Sad, but oh so true!
