Spring it seems is finally here in Maine!! Yay! It is absolutely glorious outside and I HATE having to go to work with it so nice out. As it is I had to call out twice last week for strep throat. Yes, yours truly had strep throat. Dare I say it was awful!! Just bleh! But, I’m so much better now.
So onto the knitting!! Last Tuesday a friend of mine from work asked me to make a hat for a baby girl that her friend just had. OOHHH YES!! I wasn’t up to speed on knitting baby hats when HRH was born, I was still mostly working on looooong scarves and baby blankets, so this was a treat! I made the upside down daisy hat from the book Itty Bitty Hats . I absolutely love this book. I have made two of the little boys hats in it so far but was thrilled to be able to make one of the cutesy girlie ones.
The booties were a really really simple pattern I found somewhere on the ‘net. I have been wanting to make booties for ever. Or at least try to knit some. Everyone at work around me is either having a baby or knows someone who is having a baby.
I finished the pinwheel blanket for J’s new nephew. I of course forgot to take a picture of it. J says that he will get a picture of G w/his new blankie as soon as he can. I didn’t make the blanket huge, mostly because I was getting bored and running out of yarn. I figure it’s the perfect size for a car blanket. Hopefully G will like it.
Well I am off to soak up some sun and weed some of my front gardens. I am dying to do some major revamping in there. Hopefully this weekend. =)
