This is what I've been spending my time doing, of late - knitting on this baby blanket for our first great-grandchild. It's a pretty easy knit once you learn the pattern. I'm already visualizing my new great-grandson all snuggly-wrapped in this. Due in June.
Going to Oregon for 3 days this week and I know I'll have lots of knitting time and can hardly wait. It'll be cold outside, but all the better to stay in by the fire and knit!!! This is a new knitting "toy" for me this week - a hand-thrown pottery bowl. It's so pretty and very practical. It's got two holes for yarn and the bowl is large enough to hold two balls when doing colorwork (which I hope to be doing more of).
Promise to come back with some beach pictures.
