Finally Done

I blogged about this blanket a couple of months ago. I made it for my niece, I had hoped to finish it before she was born and in fact I did finish the knitting. Sadly I was not satisfied with it. It was a little skawampus (I know I spelled that made up word wrong) and the back was ugly where I seamed all the triangles together. My plan just didn't work out, but I didn't want all my time wasted so I went deeper into homespun failure. I blanket stitched this cute flannel fabric on. It didn't really work out as I'd planned either. Oh well lesson learned. I'm giving it to her anyway.

Christmas Presents

Every year I want to knit people things for Christmas, but some how I can never seem to do it ( I actually have once before a very long time ago). I just get so busy and anxious about everything and of course I am a procrastinator! This year however even with the move I made darn sure I knitted something even if it is just a little something! I have the most AWESOME parents in the world! So I thought since they have done sooo much for me and continue to do sooo much for me they are the only ones who received knitted gifts.

A simple beanie for Dad to keep his mostly bald head warm.

My Mom looks great in red and I made her lace because she can appreciate the work that goes into knitting especially since she taught me how to knit when I was a young.

Here is a closer view of the lace pattern.
