I can totally preface this entry by asking if you are surprised that I posted before another full month has gone by?
It feels like alot has gone on since the last time I posted. Let's see, DH and I celebrated our anniversary. He surprised me and pimped out my sound system more than it already was.
I finished my Octagonal Lace Baby Blanket. Sorry for the soft edges. Red is kind of hard to photograph.
I absolutely LOVE how it came out. Seaming the pieces that much didn't even bother me as much once I got started. Now it's time to gift it to the recipient. Ha Ha....This is where things get a little kooky. I was told the recipient is a girl that was to come into the world on Feb 10th. The thing is, SHE turned out to be a HE and HE came into the world on Feb 17th. Oh and the biggest surprise of all...Can I get a drum roll please??????
HE's my FIRST GRANDSON!!!! No. Your eyes are not deceiving you. Yep... Yours truly is an ahem
cough hack grandma. In case you're wondering, I will be going by the name Lita for now. As in abuelita. I have such amazing friends that planned to gift this Lita's grandson that we were all thinking would be a girl. Maybe my friend will tell you about it herself one day. All I can say is I was more than relieved that I made the blanket in red and not pink as what I was originally planning to do.
I don't even think I can top that with how excited I was when I got home last night to see DH had a surprise in store for me. I got two words for you on this. Oh Bay-bee!
I've been admiring and salivating over one of these babies for the longest. I never expected to get one anytime soon. I was kinda on the fence with it. So far, I can tell you, it doesn't disappoint.
That's about it for me now. I'm all surprised out. I might surprise you again and be back soon with another blog posting.
Happy Knitting or whatever it is that keeps u going (:-)
