Knitting again, kinda

So I promised that I would keep up blogging, at least more than I had been. Another promise I made to myself was to knit more. The needles haven't been moving too quickly admittedly, but they aren't collecting dust either.

Several months ago, well maybe a half a year, was when I made the promise. I did complete one project back in the Summer. It was a baby blanket for my cousin who was expecting a baby boy. I furiously knit to complete it for the baby shower which fell on the same weekend that we were celebrating my great-uncle's 90th birthday. Unfortunately, I didn't finish it in time but had enough done to at least show Amanda what to expect.

I am proud to say that I did finish it just shortly after Cash was born. In my haste to get it to Amanda, I totally forgot to take a picture of the finished piece. Well just the other day I received these in my inbox ...

The first thing that came out of my mouth was, "He's so f'n cute!" And the blankie ain't so bad either, right?

I do have 2 other projects on needles: a scarf and a sweater. The scarf is nearly done. But I can't say the same for the sweater.
