Well, I've cast on another knitting project. This time it's a white baby blanket. I simply cast on 100 stitches and started knitting. I'm using the Caron One Pound Baby yarn that's in my stash. I've managed to work a total of 13 rows so far. Yay! (I'm a slow knitter.)
I actually like knitting baby blankets because they don't take as long and I usually just use a simple pattern of knit stitches or the Baby Love Diagonal Baby Blanket pattern on the Lion Brand site. But, I digress. I'm supposed to be telling you why I'm making this particular blanket. You see, I have a daughter. Yep. It's Small T. And no, she's not pregnant. But, she does have a request. She wants me to start making things for her future babies. That might sound a bit weird but I have horrible arthritis and very bad eyesight. I can see her reasoning behind it. So, I'll start working on items for this baby hope chest.
I also found out that Small T, aka Miss Particular, also has a Pinterest board called Things I Want My Mom To Make. It consists of knit and crochet items. I will have to visit her board and check it out today. I didn't know she was pinning things like that and I'm excited to see what she's interested in. Sometimes, my kids just simply amaze me!!!
