So I went to PA this weekend to visit my friend who just had a baby. I had made her a small baby blanket and was looking forward to giving it to her. It was my real first big completed project (can't count scarves and things). She loved it. She's a friend that can really appreciate hand made items. Here is a picture of it.
I'm a fairly new knitter but I'm getting better all the time. I've started a knitting group at work. We meet once a week at lunch time and we all try to help each other out. It's a good way to learn on the fly and to see what each of us is making each week is fun as well. More on how I started knitting later.
