I can’t show you any knitting yet, but I’ve got plans. Today’s been a good day for knitting plans. I have a blues busting buddy planned for my Hot Cocoa Swap downstream. I have plans for all of my PiF projects. I have yarn selected for Megan’s hat. (Well, Sissy selected it, but anyway…)
Now, I need your help. There’s a baby shower in the Knight’s family in a few weeks. I can’t do a blanket, because I didn’t do a blanket for the cousin (I wasn’t knitting then, but if you have inlaws like mine, you understand). Booties will be outgrown quickly, so what else can I do quickly that will have more than a few weeks of use? I also have a baby blanket to knit for a good friend, but she’s due April 15th, and we decided tonight that 4-4-08 is a really “cute” birthday, so either way, I have plenty of time to pull of the blanket I admire most off for a special, first-time mom. I need your help here too. What’s the best yarn to use? I’ve always used acrylic, but I read a good article the other day about wool not being flammable, so now that’s on my firefighting mind… This is a mom to be up to handwashing, if that matters.
Shhh… don’t wake *MY* baby.
Oh – and don’t forget to swing in and check out Michelle’s random contest!
