I've finally completed Project Linus Afghan #2 of 2012! This one I am calling "I'm Singing The Blues" because it has a little of every skein of blue yarn in my stash besides fingering weight. LOL Not one of my favorites but, still pretty in it's own right I think! Some little boy is going to love snuggling up with it!
I am already in the planning stage with Afghan #3. I've pulled all of my reds, pinks and purple yarns out. The next couple will be Valentine's afghans! I do not have enough of one color for an afghan so, we will see what interesting color combinations I come up with! Hopefully they will turn out.
Now onto the NEWS! I just found out...last Friday night...that my youngest son and his wife are expecting their first child in September! So, at 41...I'm going to be a GRANDMOTHER! I can hardly believe it! He is stationed at Fort Wainwright, Alaska for the next couple of years so I doubt I will be able to attend the birth or see the baby very much at all (which saddens me greatly) but, I can still spoil the baby from afar with plenty of hand knit & crocheted goodies! I mean, an Alaskan born baby NEEDS plenty of warm knits right???? LOL
So, you will also start viewing some baby items I am making! One item is, of course, going to be an afghan for the baby. My son & his wife requested a color combination of blue, orange and teal - definitely going to be an interesting afghan for sure! Not sure how I'm going to come up with that one LOL! But, since that is what they requested, that is what I will make (along with a couple of other afghans with more pleasing color combinations) lol. Anyone have some favorite baby patterns they would like to share?
