first project of the year

January 1, 2011

it has been over a year in the making, but today i finished knitting a blanket for jay. it was supposed to be for christmas last year, but ended up being for new year’s day! 1.1.11 and DONE!

this project came about after i had knitted a blanket for kellen for her first christmas back in 2008.

although i enjoy knitting i’m not that good at it.  i’d really love to learn how to knit beanies. (even crochet would be swell.) my aunt pat was a fantastic crochet and knitter, so i miss that she’s not here to show me how. it is amazing how much i can find on you tube. as i was finishing jay’s blanket, i realized i couldn’t quite remember how to bind off. so i google searched and found a great you tube video that showed me! awesome.

so the new year is starting off great with a finished project under my belt already!
