knit, knit again!!
And here is my first ever, knitted piece. It’s a 4 inch-ish, square-ish piece for a blanket! Hooray! It looks like all my previous knitting lessons finally sunk in, and I caught on pretty quickly. I need to relax a little though, because I’m knitting a bit tight. However, this is MORE than I have ever done before. I’m already dreaming of beautiful kid-size stripey sweaters in bright colors.
Actually, this square, and a few more hopefuly better than it and less wonky in spots, is going to be part of a 4-generation blanket. My husband’s grandmother had her mother-in-law knit squares like this in the years before she passed away, keeping them for future generations. So, hopefully in a couple weeks, my kids will have blankets that their Great-Great Grandma, Great Grandma, Grandma, and Mom all helped to make! And maybe someday Little Miss Sunshine will add to them. She’s already asking to “do the needling!”
