Knitting blankets and Grandbrats

There is still actually knitting going on at the Knittinfun house. Lots of knitting, continuous, one stitch, football watching, evening t.v. knitting.
"Let me make garter stitch blankets" I said, "it will be easy (boring) knitting to make for the babies," I said.
I admit, I get bored really easy with my projects. I can't help it. It starts as a bright flame and visions of piles of garter stitch blankets, and ends with "what was I thinking?!"
But I have a deadline to keep, so I plugged away at it. Sissy B's blanket is probably about only an hour away from being finished. Since she has been the recipient of many of my handmade items when she was little, I had to throw this to the back burner and get started on the babie's blankets to have them finished in time for Christmas.
Don't get all bent out of shape, Sissy B will still receive her hugs from MiMi, just doesn't have to be at Christmas time.

Trent's (Grandbrat #7) blanket has to be finished a lot sooner than that. 
The picture is a little dark, but this is the same yarn as Sissy B's in blues,blacks, greys and whites. Perfect for a growing boy.
Here is a better picture with some more length on it. 
And yes! I am most definitely still in love with this yarn!

This was just about a week ago, and as of 9pm last night it is finished and put in the drawer waiting for prep day.
I will get better pics of the finished blanket after prep day, when it will be all shiny and new looking.

We got a special little visitor a little over a week ago. 
This is Ada Grace (grandbrat #8) 
She is the spitting image of her father and I think she looks a lot like PawPaw also. 
She is the quietest little thing and a tad shy. 
I think that means more trips to visit are in order!

 This little guy is the recipient of the blue blanket.
He cam to visit MiMi and PawPaw and all those kids.
He is full of life and wonder. And soooo tiny!

Giving high fives!
He loves PawPaw!

So you see, in and amongst all the sewing and visiting and church and appointments, there is still some knitting going on over at Knittinfun!

Getting back in the groove

It's been so long since I have wanted to knit anything.  I knit so many socks when I started knitting back in '99 that I was comp...
