WIPW: Work-In-Progress Wednesday
What's the newest thing I am working on right now? My knitting! I'm kind of really enjoying it... although crocheting will still be my #1 BFF. Anyways, I am working on a small little baby blanket to put into a memory box. I donate a memory box to a local hospital in my daughters name every August 19th (Day of Hope). In my memory box, I always include a handmade blanket. Usually it is white, for non-gender specific baby. However, I think this year I want to make at least 2 boxes. One for a boy, and one for a girl. Then if I get around to it, i'll make a white one as well.
I figured I'd put my knitting skills to use and try my hand at a basketweave blanket. It's coming along rather slowly. I've only been able to do one or two rows a night... and there has been no time for crocheting. So I might have to put the knitting down for awhile so I can get back to my gift sets.
Anyways, this is what I have completed so far.
Since I am still borrowing knitting needles, I am working with a circular needle that is kind of too small..... but it works! Hopefully soon I can see some actual progress being made on it. Right now it's so hard to see what it will actually look like, and if i'm doing it correctly.
I am linking this bad boy up over at Tami's WIP, Ambassador Crochet, Yarn Along and The Crochet Way.
