First things first - new pic of Baby Blaine.
It seems that all I've been doing lately is starting things and then changing my mind. I've finally setttled on a project and it is driving me crazy. It's a baby blanket for a friend who is expecting. The basic pattern is SO simple.
One row of: K2tog 4X, YO, *K1,YO* 7X. Then purl a row, knit a row, purl a row, and start over.
I have started this thing over five times! I don't know what my problem is!
This time I am up to 4 inches. The pattern doesn't look like the picture yet but
I am going to keep on and trust the pattern. We'll see....
My latest project has been making hair bows for Blaine. AND as I seem to do with everything - go a little overboard - I bought ribbon in every color. People have asked me about selling them, but the truth is I don't actually enjoy making them, so one of each is my limit. DD just called and said this picture was up on her blog - isn't that hilarious! ALL of the bows at once!
I found a sewing machine! I settled on a Kenmore. It does everything I wanted, including monogram - not large letters, but about an inch. A good size to put on hairbows and onesies [sp?]. I've been sewing on a 1958 Singer, [my Mom bought it when I was 8] so all of these buttons and computerized things are challenging.
DD and SIL came down two weeks ago and we took some four generation pictures. My mother is 90 and could not make the trip to Louisville.
I think this is great one of her with the baby.
I haven't been writing or reading much lately, so I am going to close and read some of your blogs. Thanks for stopping by! When school is out, I'll be able to write and read more regularly.
Hugs to all,
