First I will tell you about the baby blanket that I made for my cousin in the U.K. She had a gorgeous baby boy while I was there, as I mentioned, and Mr. Frogged and I were lucky enough to get to meet the little monkey. Not only that, but he liked me (he really liked me!). Little Duffle deigned us with his presence at nine something in the morning after already hanging in an extra two weeks! At little more than an hour old we went to visit him. After much begging and pleading we were allowed by the rigid U.K. hospital staff to visit this little man for whom we had made this special trip. We walked into the hospital room and he was there in his mummy's arms, happy as a clam. His daddy took him, he cried. His grandaddy took him, he cried. I asked for a cuddle, assuming that there was no way I could possibly make it worse, he stopped crying. He snuggled. He slept. His daddy took him, he cried. Therefore, I conclude that he likes me. What he also likes is his big baby blankie that I was able to give him that morning. Below are some blocking pictures and then a couple of cuties that I have been given to show you all. Awwwww, bless 'im.

The full blanket, awaiting a wash.
I am still working on my Frilly Filly Scarf Cowl, but am not very quick with it. I have about 2 repeats done out of about 1000. I pulled out an old UFO (Un-Finished Object) pair of socks and am knitting on those from time to time, but today I got a box of yarn. Heheheh, delirious laughter abounds. My Knit Picks order of 11 skeins of Swish DK Yarn in colour Sugar Plum have arrived. I am beginning a Bobble Baby Blanket, and I have another in the wings for when that one is done. The Bobble Baby Blanket is a request from the recipient of my first pink blanket and I'm hoping she will like it. I'm already in love with the yarn. The one that is in the wings is not fully decided on at the moment, but it will be for another of my cousins who is expecting her baby sometime in October. No rest for the wicked, as they say.
Anyways my friends, I think that brings you all up to date. Tell me what you're working on, I'd love to know.
Until next time, Happy Crafting!
