Knit Lit

Baby blanket plus belated Christmas

I’m just starting to feel normal, well, normal for me. I have been knitting, just not as much as I wish I could. As far as I know, we are still having the baby shower for my co-worker on Friday. I am not sure if I am going to be able to finish it. I guess I could make a small blanket. How big are baby blankets anyway? It has been such a long time since I had to carry one around. Anywho, here is how far I’ve gotten:

I am still loving this project. I want one of my own. I don’t think that I would make it through one for me, though. I was very disappointed to find out that I will not be giving the baby his first hand knit. Not only that, I will be giving him his second hand knit blanket! Wow! I wish I had stuck with my usual new baby gift. I usually make a sweater for the baby when he or she is 6 to 12 months. I figure that the new parents will be receiving so many new baby gifts, that a gift they can use later would be appreciated. This time, however, I had this super soft yarn that I know will be wasted sitting on my shelf. It was not suitable for a sweater in my opinion. It is perfect for a spring born baby blanket. I think it is great, but I am ready for it to be over.

Hubby gave me a great Christmas present. I’ve been working on how to post it, and I just figured it out:

Is that not funny? I love it!
