…and a lot of other stuff, too!

WHEEEEEEEEEE! It’s Finally OFF the Needles!

Baby Blanket almost done

Yesterday was a very happy knitting day, indeed. The fall chill is definitely in the air, the leaves are dropping, and it was the first day of Standard Time, which though I dread the early nights it is nice to see the sun again in the mornings. My friend Steve came over and he had a pile of long-neglected paperwork with him. For some reason, he says he does better getting his stuff done at my house. That sitting in the company of someone is an incentive to get the task done.

Well, I think I do know what he means. While he was sitting at my kitchen table writing away, I sat nearby, finishing the last row and then doing the bind off for my long-suffering rainbow stripey baby blanket. Yes, there were many days when I was certain that this project would just NEVER get done. Of course, I have all those ends to weave in, but a good friend has volunteered to come over and help. Yay! I’m still trying to decide whether this blanket needs a border. Opinions, anyone? I’m thinking the blue color, since the baby is a boy. (I originally picked the rainbow because the MOM loves bright colors, and the gender of the baby was unknown at the time.)

It’ll be a relief to start a new project. I’m planning some baby hats for a co-worker (a different one!). Then it will be time to make a hat for my mom and a new one for me. Then, I’m tackling mittens. But wait… I’m getting ahead of myself…

    I think a blue border would look quite nice.
