This past week has been winter break and I have started referring to myself as the Sherpa. My job is to schlepp everyone around to their fun activities, wait as long as it takes until they are finished, then bring them home hungry and tired where I tend to their needs for food, rest and shelter. At the end of the day, I am exhausted! I was lamenting this fact to my friend who works full-time, and she looked at me wistfully, saying that she is wracked with guilt this week because her kids are home and she is at work. We laughed - you're either spent or guilty.
This little blanket has been my own refuge. It's the Fiber Trends Easy Knit Baby Blankets 2 in Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran in "Celery". I cast on for this right after I had just told my shop friends that I just don't feel like knitting for babies anymore. That night my husband told me about a co-worker's new baby that just arrived that day. I remembered Katy's version in Cotton Fleece in this pattern and spotted this color in the shop. Who am I kidding - baby knitting is just the best!
