Whew! Christmas is over, but only just. Now to prep for New Year’s. We will be going to a friend’s house this year. We usually do New Year’s, but they are giving us a break this year. Won’t enjoy having to get out in the cold though! But at least I can take knitting and not have to be the hostess, so it’s all good.
One of my last FOs of the year is one of my favorites!!! Our niece is expecting in February. And this will be another great-grand-daughter for the family. So excited!!! Just wish they lived closer. So, for her special babe I made a small Girasole. I love it!!! I am so planning to make a full size Girasole out of orange Cascade 220 for myself next year. And maybe a green Girasole Christmas Tree skirt for one of Mom’s many trees.
So glad I picked up that set of blocking squares!!!
I hope that Baby C-Chick loves her blanket as much as her big brother C-Man loves his! I even made him a new one because he has destroyed the first one. But no, it’s not good enough. He still loves his first one.
It just warms your heart to know that a babe has chosen your knitting to be their special blanket. I can claim two “favorite blanket” items I made. Hoping this latest blanket becomes #3. And, I just might have another opportunity to make a “favorite” because we found out on Christmas Eve that the other niece is expected next year too!!! So I will have 4 months in between to make more baby stuff!!! When the family noticed I had teared up at the news they decided I was crying because I was so happy to have another reason to knit stuff! They know me so well.
Now, check out what others are fibering as we finish out the year that was 2013.Wonder can help you find some wonderful projects.
