Three years ago I was teaching myself how to knit. I had purchased a DVD that had basic knit and purl instructions, some yarn, and a pair of plastic needles that came with the DVD. I had a 2 year old daughter and was pregnant with my son and I had visions of handmade knits for all. My grandmother passed away in 2003 and when she died I came home with a box of cream colored yarn. No labels on any of the skeins just wound balls of yarn. After I had mastered knitting and purling and didn't require the DVD in slow motion to knit some stockinette stitch I decided to use up the yarn and make a blanket for my baby to be. Of course only the simplest stitches would do because I was a complete novice and I needed a project I could pick and put down while I chased after a two year old and battled bouts of morning sickness. When the blanket was finished I washed and folded it and waited for the baby to put inside.
Hope you are having a wondeful Saturday!
