Silly Long Weekend

I started the baby blanket today. The baby's due in November. Just to clarify--I'm not having the baby--my boss is. I'm enjoying the Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Baby yarn--very soft. I am remembering though why I don't usually knit; it's pretty boring, and you get lulled into this false sense of in and out and up and down and back and forth and pull a little more yarn off the ball and suddenly your realize that ten rows ago you screwed something up fatally. Funny that I don't find stitching as boring. Or as treacherous.

Pink: "Mom bought me this hat. She said it makes me look like a pink flamingo."

Elvis: "What are YOU looking at?!"

I don't like knitting at all! But crochet is a different story. Ha, ha on the bunny boys

Oh I am SO guilty of wanting to knit...I knit a scarf then I thought I could take on the world. I signed up for classes and then knit a dishcloth in the interim. Decided it was boring and realized if I couldn't get the gauge right in a dishcloth, what would a sweater look like? So now I have a 3rd(!!) bag of yarn to add to my desire to take knitting lessons over the years. Ugh!
Love the bunny pics. Pink's hat is perfectly pink!

Not good Elvis ... not good at all.

I can sense some serious disapproval from Pink and Elvis..and still they're so cute!
It's funny how tastes can be so different...I love knitting while I never got the hang of crochet or did much embroidering. I started doing a tablecloth with some white classic stitching, and never went further than the second side of the cloth...I gave it then to my sister to finish it.

Pink looks pretty snazzy in that beautiful feathery hat. Elvis -- not so much.

Good luck on the knitting. I used to crochet. Tried knitting, but it never caught my attention -- I'm with you, finding my mind wandering and stitches dropped!

I have the same problem with knitting - I get lured into a false sense of security and then I realized I've royally screwed up! Ugh! It is fun though, just to knit for the sake of knitting I guess.
