I finished the new baby blanket square. A co-worker in my department is expecting a baby boy. I hadn’t even considered the baby blanket, even though we did one less than a year ago for Sarah, my other co-worker. But one of the women in the office mentioned it to me, and I happened to have enough time to jump in and make a square.
The woman putting it together, Tina, decided to select a pattern to inspire our baby blanket rather than everyone do a random design. Last time, we all chose our own designs and it looked great. So this is trying something new. The pattern is pretty straight forward. I finished it on Thursday. Here’s the image.
It was supposed to be 8″x8″, but I ended up running out of yarn, so it’s slightly less than 8″x8″, but once it’s attached to the rest of the squares it will be just right!
I have quite a few knitting tasks ahead of me!
A few people have asked for some things and others I’m making as gifts…I need to keep a list so I don’t forget anyone. What better place than here, my knitting project “tracker”?
(these aren’t socks in the traditional sense; according to the pattern there isn’t an actual heel portion to knit)
MaKayla (I started this over a year ago and put it aside as I learned how to make more things…I really need to finish this for her!)
9″x9″ squares for the Pine Street Inn Annual Knit-a-Thon (I’ll explain more about this later)
** [Edit 23-Nov-11] I was unable to complete these by the Knit-a-Thon, so I will save them for next year… I will blog about this later, I have an idea brewing…
There are also some other really cute patterns that I’ve lined up in my queue on Ravelry, but this list is requested items that I want to make and so I will concentrate on these first!
