This photo clearly does not do Debra’s work justice…envision!!

Several baby items popped up this week. Debra finished her Textured Interweave Baby Blanket (actual name of pattern)….the subtle color variegated choice with the detailed stitching pattern was perfect. She did labor a bit over some mis-knit stitches…but not to worry she was able to get back on track with either my help or her own. I love this design and I think I have to knit it….I know there are babies on the horizon in this family. You can find the pattern at Ravelry….it’s a free download. A shout out to the designer for a lovely design!

This past Saturday PJ came with two delights….well really four. There were socks and booties knit from her leftover sock yarn. They are so darn sweet and evoked many noises of delight! Then she showed her reversible baby hat knit from left over sock yarn. I think I have to take this idea and knit this for my Idaho nephew for Christmas…..well maybe even my Iowa nephew. They both live in spots where it gets darn cold in the winter.

IMG_1061Happy birthday to Jean!! A couple weeks ago the FMKG (Friday Morning Knit Group) was pondering whose birthday was up next. Jean was at this session…but not  a word heard from Jean…I went to the birthday list and shouted out “It’s Jean’s birthday coming up!” Her special day happens between knit work shop sessions….we couldn’t decide this past Friday or the next one….so it’s both. This past Friday was the 1st celebration. Many of us could be there….Kimberly was back from her month in Nantucket….Cameron, Ellen, Patricia, and Rachell were otherwise committed….so some 14 of us gathered to celebrate wonderful Jean. And we knit too! Watch for posting about Debra’s finished baby afghan/blanket.
