Whenever a new baby joined our family, my grandmother would make him or her a baby blanket. Since she is no longer here to make my soon-to-be-born niece her blanket, I decided to learn to how to knit.
So since October, my hands have had knitting needles in them pretty much every chance they had. In the classes I took, they had me start with a washcloth and move on to a scarf. I had to put the scarf aside in order to start the baby blanket. But I'll be finishing that scarf soon.
I started the blanket in December. And I finished it this past weekend. Finally. And just in time too as my niece will be here just about any day now.
