The start of something new. New babies, that is. And new knitting projects for new babies. Two new grandbabies due in the spring, and I am giddy with joy.
My newest knitting project is a white blanket for a precious, yet unborn, baby boy or girl. The pattern is the Pine Forest Baby Blanket, modified. I'm using a wool-acrylic blend yarn (Berroco Vintage DK) which is machine washable and dryable, making it a good choice for baby items.
A few days ago I spent the day with three of my five daughters. We went to
town and shopped and ate and drank coffee (okay, I was the only one who
drank the coffee) and ate chocolate and looked at art galleries and ate
some more and looked at antique shops and ate again (I had forgotten how
hungry pregnant women can be!) and just enjoyed hanging out together.
We missed my lives-in-Switzerland daughter tremendously, but it was a
fun and enjoyable day otherwise. It was a day that I hope to repeat
many, many times. I am so blessed.
