It is FINISHED!


Well I am finally done. It has been about six months since I began this log cabin baby blankie. Of course I had several long breaks but it is finished. I had heard that the most unexciting part would be the weaving in of all those many ends, but do you know I was just bursting with excitement as each end was neatly tucked away. So here it is... Baby Alex will be warm this winter after all!!!
Well I am also kinda proud to actually have a picture of this one. This is the third handknit I have made. The first a scarf for Mom and the second a ballband dishcloth Mom confiscated. Neither of which did I get a pick for my knitting diary. So this will be the first of many handknits. I love love love knitting. Thank you Mother for giving me the gift of knitting last Christmas. There are my fish, my dog, bowling & my knitting. I think my hobbies are well rounded don't you?

Congratulations on finishing your log cabin baby blanket. It's beautiful! I can't believe this is only your 3rd handknit object. Can't wait to see what you do next :)

Happy knitting :)

That is really cute! Congratulations. Word of warning: blogging may be dangerous to your knitting habit...it may increase rather than tame it!

Paula, it's beautiful and I'm so impressed that this blanket was only your 3rd project. A friend of mine made a log cabin for her FIRST project but she is kind of a NUT. xoxo Kay

Thanks everyone..I have had so much fund knitting. I think I have developed a new sickness..KNITTING. I don't want to even let the dog out if it means putting down the knitting. Oh and thanks about color choices too..the yarn I bought at hobby lobby and it is called Bernat Cotton Tots. Well I have to go. Knitting is calling my name. My cousin just found out today that she is having twins so I need to get busy!
