In Progress

My latest knitting project is a baby blanket. I've been working on it for a while. It's just a basic stockinette stitch on size 7 needles. This is one of those tedious projects that is easy to put down for long periods of time. The yarn is hand dyed and very soft, from Lorna's Laces. I got a good deal on Ebay on 2 skeins which will definitely be enough for the size I want to make it. I love the way the colors look in the skein but am not so sure about the extreme stripeyness look in the blanket itself. Not the typical baby blanket look which is good, I guess.

That's a pretty blanket, Liane. Really wish I knew how to knit. Tried to teach myself from a book, but I think I need "live help." :)

I need live help, book help, and whatever other help there might be to learn and retain how to knit. Wish I could do such wonders myself...

Impressive! Now, knit yourself a costume and come on Saturday!
