Finish and start

I finished up the blue baby blanket I've been knitting on for too long. It is called a Mystery Stitch Blanket. The mystery is knit a stitch and then slip a stitch. This is reversible and looks the same on both sides because of that stitch pattern. I like it.
Then I immediately cast on the pink for this Textured Plaid Blanket. Trying to finish this one up faster so I will have a choice when the baby comes.
Oh, btw...did I mention my step daughter is expecting...within the next six weeks. Excited to find out what it is! My daughter is throwing a baby shower for her this coming Saturday. We went together and bought the baby swing she was registered for. Hope it is exactly what she wants.
That's all for now!

Dear Blog,

I have been doing more reading of books than knitting of things. Therefore I have not finished one item in 2010. Also I have not started any new projects either. It's about time to change that. Hopefully, I will have something to report soon. ;-)
