baby blanket

I need a present for our friends baby and I need it fast, so it was time to dust off the old knitting needles. I used my new swift and ball winder my husband got me for my birthday to wind the newly purchased knitpicks swish bulky into perfect balls. Then I started building:I love the log cabin concept. It's so fun for baby blankets and it's even better with bulky yarn - instant gratification! I sort of wish I'd of done something different, but with each of these I do I learn something new and I'm pretty sure I'll never get sick of making them. I need to catch the knitting fever again, I've been such a slacker.

Yes and I'm afraid that I have leaked it to a few friends out here. You are famous!

I think that is lovely too. Just so you know on the knitted caps...I bought one in cashmere from Neiman's last winter...I won't tell you how much I paid...but YOU could make a fortune selling them!!
