Lately it seems I can't put my knitting needles down.
It's been one knitted project after another.
It seems I'm in a groove and I don't want to stop....
...I just want to keep on going.
My last two projects were knitted baby hats. I showed you one of them in my last post.
Now I've started working on a blanket. I know it's not the ideal project for the middle of Summer but I wanted something that didn't require a whole lot of thinking. It's my first attempt at knitting a blanket so I chose a fairly easy pattern that only called for knits and purls.
Easy enough. I can handle this.
Even though it's a simple design I really like the look of it.

It's very pretty. I know you'll love it too.
As most of y'all know I am a sucker for anything vintage and handmade. I came across these quilts at our local thrift and just had to bring them home with me. They're a little battered and ripped in certain places but for the most part they're in decent shape. I think I can fix them with a little tlc. They still have a lot of life left in them.
See all the vintage charm?
This one will be a favorite to take to the football games coming up this Fall.
Thank You for all your kind comments on my last post about my fathers cancer journey. He is now out of the hospital after spending three weeks there. He is still recuperating from his surgery and hopefully in August he will start chemotherapy treatments. Me and my two girls traveled up to Kansas to spend a week with him. We came back home last Friday and I am still trying to catch up on things around the house. You'd be surprised how much laundry and chores get backed up when Mom isn't around for a week. It's crazy.
Much love to everyone,
