No Harm in Yarn

Can't we all just knit along?

The Baby Next Door

Well, the neighbors have a brand spankin' new baby. It's always amazing to me that all humans start out so small. Anyhow, new babies mean gift knitting! I made a blanket.

This is no wimpy, thin, sportweight baby blanket. It's worsted, which makes it cushy and a little weighty. Perfect because winter is right around the corner. I used Caron Simply Soft Paints and Louisa Harding's pattern from Natural Knits.

I've made some progress on Monkey socks, meant to be a Christmas gift, in Patons Stretch Socks.

I feel pretty awesome that I have a Holiday project just about finished in September. I have to admit that I love Christmas so much that I start planning for it in August. I've even purchased my wrapping paper melange(I must always have a theme) for this year. But I rarely find myself ahead on the Christmas knitting. Wheee!
