Before I start the post for real, I want to thank all of you for leaving such kind comments. I was a little concerned that since I dropped off the face of blogland that I would have lost all of my readers as well. So, thanks!!
Anyway, so what have I been up to in the last few weeks? Well, school has definitely been a little slower - with the summer break and all. Still keeping up with the research - but it makes a big difference to not have classes constantly.
So, I sent in the baby gift and it was very well received. So, now it's onto the next set of baby gifts for my sister-in-law. We don't know the sex of the baby yet - so I decided on something gender neutral:
You're looking at the Cot Blanket from Natural Knits for Babies and Moms. I just love this book - and this looks like the perfect gender neutral project.
So, I started working on it - and have completed 3 squares. By the way, I will not be doing another 49 square bonanza. Oh, you know you remember this. No, I will never be doing that again. This baby blanket is much more manageable. Only 12 squares. That means that I've completed 25% of the squares for the entire blanket. Not bad!! Those are squares that I definitely can handle...plus, it's kind of fun to knit.
