Happiness is....

...another finished object. I'll post pictures later. It's the blanket that I gave to the mother to be at the baby shower I whined - okay bitched - about earlier. I've got a whole list of other things to knit - some started, some waiting hopefully. I had thought I would knit a baby surprise jacket for the baby to be of one of A's co-workers - until I found that 3 of the wives are expecting. Now - the one I was planning for I have met and spent time with and I like her. I have never met the other two - but it might be kind of awkward for A to walk in with a present for one, not the others. So, I'm switching gears to making a few baby hats and bibs. I'm thinking it might be a good idea to knit extras of those when I've got nothing in particular that I want to knit. I want to do this square a month afghan knit-along - but there's other stuff I want to do as well and I kind of promised the dog I would knit him an afghan. The knit-along one would be just to pretty to put on the dog's bed though. Oh well - it's good to be busy.

It's nice to have a list of projects to want to knit up. My queue is quite long.

Kate, I have a dogknits book that has great patterns in it -- and I believe there might be a doggie throw blanket. Want to borrow?

Aimee - thanks but I have a plan. I am going to use Boomer's blanket to experiment! I plan to do blocks of 10 or 12 inches and try different stitch patterns and such on each one.
