My evenings have recently been occupied by a ver cute and heartwarming little project. Just before Christmas one of my best friends let me know that she is expecting a baby. Of course, I immediately decided that I must make something for her and I started on a blanket. Earlier this year I made a silly purchase of three blue-ist and three pink-ish balls of yarn, not knowing what they will be good for but knowing I'll need a lot.
Since at first the gender of the new baby wasn't known, I started knitting squares from both colours. However my friend really fancied a boy, so as an act of moral support I was making more blue ones than pink ones. More recently it turned out it really will be a boy! So now all that is left to do is wait. And knit and knit and knit :)
I look forward to spending more evenings in front of the telly or listening to music whilst knitting row after row of ripples that will eventually envelop a tiny baby.
