Got nuttin' to show. I've been working on a baby blanket for a friend, just started the third square. I haven't taken any pictures yet. I am pondering on another baby blanket, too, for Hub's cousin who is expecting a girl soon. I was looking at this one, wanting to use maybe Patons Shetland Chunky so it's a quicker knit. I really wanted to use Butter (the name of the color!), but we only have four skeins, and I think I'll need five at least. So if I choose this pattern I'll have to go for Frosted Rose, I think. I had originally thought of making her the same blanket as the one I'm doing now, but I don't know if I want to do another just like it only different colors right away. I like the pattern, just think I'd like to do something different.

Didn't get much knitting done yesterday. I worked all day, and I wasn't feeling well. Went home, absolutely freezing so I wrapped up in my fleece robe. Then hot flashes took over. I knit five rows on the baby blanket, then went to bed early. I feel better today. My mother has a cold, so I'm sure she's passing it around. The Oldest One complained this morning that he was getting a sore throat.

Happy knitting!

I love the pin wheel blanket... I have one on the needle for the cats, but I've made a couple of others for babies. It's nice and mindless.

I like both of the blankets , but if it was me i'd probably go with the pinwheel blanket for the second one . I 'm eaily bored and wouldn't like to knit the same one twice.

The weather has cooled off quite a bit here and there's lots of people walking around with the sniffles . Hope you feel better soon !

BTW , since i've been missing in ction you've finished some knitts . They're beautiful , but the little vest brought out an "awww , so cute " !
