I had to share my newest obsession, I mean project. The pattern is Latvian Garden Baby Blanket, knit in the round in several Wollmeise colorways on size 2.5 mm needles. I started it about 10 days ago and have not picked up another project. It is a very addictive knit, and I am loving working on it.

I never thought I would be able to knit anything like this. I am very proud of it.

I finished another baby blanket. This one is for Collin's baby, who is due in July. The baby shower is this afternoon, so I had to do a quick photo shoot. Now I need to go wrap it up and get to the shower. The pattern is This Little Piggy; the yarn is Miss Babs Yowza in Frog Belly colorway.

Collin always had a thing for pigs when she was a little girl, so I thought this would be appropriate.

Another BIG FINISHED OBJECT this week is Josh. Well, not exactly. He graduated from LSU this week in Finance, but he will continue his education and get his Master's. He is a wonderful young man, and his dad and I are extremely proud of his dedication and hard work in everything he does.
Love you, Josh!!!

A Few More FO's

I finished a few more things this past month. First is Cradle Me by Anne Hanson, knit in Wollmeise twin, Dunkle Kirsche colorway, on size 9 needles. This is going to the Walthalls' grandbaby, a girl, due this month. Hope they like it. It is fairly big - 40" x 36".

Next is the first installment of Cookie A's sock club. The pattern is Ripple Leaf Socks, yarn is String Theory Caper in Solas colorway, knit on 2.25 mm needles. I am not sure if I will keep these or give them away.

This was so quick and fun to knit. It is Baby Kina and Magic Slippers to match. Yarn is NummaNumma the special in Cherry on Top colorway. Baby Kina was knit with yarn held double on size 4 needles. Magic Slippers were knit on 2.5 mm needles with yarn held single. Still need buttons. This was made for Bridget's soon-to-be born grandbaby. I will definitely make this again.
Have a great day.
