Today I met up with a dear friend for lunch and a visit. She comes to visit me every few months since she retired (lucky, isn’t she?).
She recently became a grandma so I wanted to make something for her new granddaughter. I started knitting a baby blanket several months ago but got side-tracked with other projects and kept thinking I had lots of time to finish. Well, that wasn’t true as I ended up working late last night trying get it knitted in time for our meeting today. Nothing like leaving things to the end. Sheeesh. I was able to finish it though, get it washed up nice and wrapped. Phew.
I’m quite pleased with how it turned out. I used a jacquard yarn that I hadn’t tried before and I also had to do the edging separately and sew it on (another thing I learned). It’s nice to be able to make something yourself and give to someone as a gift.
