a blanket for eliza winifred

I'm a procrastinator. Anyone who knows me knows this to be the 100% Amen truth. If it's a project where I'M chief, then the job WILL get done...but on my time (if it's job related, no worries. I hand in all my writing & editing assignments on time). ;)

Last August, when my sister-in-law announced that she was pregnant, I knew I was going to knit a baby blanket. However, no one in their right mind starts a baby blanket (esp. one made with skeins of baby llama yarn) in the sweat-inducing month of August. So I waited a few months to buy skeins of softest ivory, heather, deep plum, and chocolate. The baby was due in March and I had a solid six months to get this blanket done. No problem.


I was knitting practically right up to Eliza's birthday. But I AM getting better. I had the blanket done five days or so before we drove to Tennessee to meet Miss Eliza for the very first time. The blanket before that one, I was busy weaving in loose threads AFTER my friend had opened the present...


  1. I love that blanket - tis so PURDY. On another note, I forgot that you were using my drawing and I did a second-take when your blog popped up. Me thinks the lines you and I cross constantly between each others lives are starting to get ridiculous! ;D (per yesterday's convo)

  2. Never! I think that just makes us closer besties/sisters. ;) ;)
