Christmas brings many gifts and this year the one I give myself is a place to chronicle my many knitting adventures. So welcome ... soon we will begin "The First Sweater" project but until then there are a few items on the needles that need to be completed first. The baby blanket of much notoriety at my LYS started many, many months ago for a dear friend heads the list. That dear friend's baby received a beautiful gift from Tiffany's as did Friend #2 and Friend #3. They were conceived, born and raised never knowing they were, at one time, the lucky recipient of the blanket - until it became clearly embarrassing that I'd yet to fork over a birth gift of some kind. So now, it sits dormant waiting for some unsuspecting zygote to appear on a pregnancy test stick in a bathroom somewhere in the world.
The blanket is knit in squares and will eventually have a knitted, scalloped border as well. It's a leaf design where 4 leaves from 4 squares come together in pattern. There's lots of finishing and blocking in the future but here's a little preview as part of my inaugural post. Welcome again, come again often! Joseph
