Isn't my new knitting project cheerful? I'm trying to knit a little bit every day but not too much since it's cotton and cotton can be rough on my hands. This sweet little blanket is for our future grandchild. Yup, our son and daughter in law are expecting in early February and we are beyond excited. I made this blanket pattern for my nephew's son and loved it so much I decided to knit it again only in a medium size. I just might knit a small size as well since I bought a ton of yellow yarn. The repeated seed stitch stripes makes for potato chip knitting (just one more row!).
What are you working on this week?

That does look pretty Karen, love the colour too. Congratulations on your news. Have you managed to give up work now? I'm working part time, since lockdown it's a lot less, which is good. Especially in the heat, it's exhausting CxReplyDelete
I was babysitting part time but the lockdown ended that so I'm retired for now unless something else comes along. My husband retired last year right after the lockdown.Delete
