Teh Dormouse sez...

Somebody in my family is having a baby this year.

Nope. Not me.

It's her first baby, and we're all excited!

It also gives some of us an excuse to pull out the knitting needles, books of wee knits, and soft, baby-friendly yarns. As for myself, of course I pull out the needles, baby-soft yarn, and peruse the books of wee-knits, and then think...I'll design something myself.

Yep. Designing a baby blanket. So, for about the last few days, I've been looking at other designs, thinking, noticing how big each blanket is, thinking, the yarns used, thinking, how much time I have until it needs to be done, thinking...

But today, I finally, actually, cast on stitches and started knitting.

The details thus far: size 8 (US) needle, Lion Brand (TM) Pound of Love baby yarn in white, knitting corner-to-corner, and totaly my design. The rest of my details will be posted on Ravelry, and I'm contemplating selling it there too. We'll see how it turns out.

Oh, yeah, another detail: I have to have it finished BEFORE August 28. Why? The Dormouse is having a tea party, and I have to have my sun hat then too. That only give me, hmm, less than 18 days. No problem. Right?
