Jonni got a Knifty Knitter set for Christmas. She actualy opened it and checked it out last night. So far she has made a single fingerless glove with a little help starting and finishing from me. Now she has just finished a matching skater cap. I wish my camera worked.

ok, here is the finished shawl on ellie. i ended up giving it to her. the color isn't good because it is a camera phone picture, but since the color is good in the other pictures, you can see the finished product and know what it should look like.

thank you both blush it was really easy, and now that i have the "idea" together, i am going to do 3 baby blankets in the same kind of pattern, but different colors, and more square. my little sister is due in may, and i'm going to do one for her. and ellie likes her shawl so much, she's asked that i make baby blankets until i can't just so that all the (as yet un-conceived) grandchildren have one. i guess she will store them. why i've started a shawl/scarf for me that i'm liking better, i'll post sometime this week.

Jiffy - you did a terrific job on that shawl!
I think it's a great idea for you to keep making baby blankets like it, so long as your hands hold up - what a wonderful thing for the yet unknown grandchildren to have and cherish!

it is going to be between 5 and 6 feet long and it's about 16 inches wide. the first one i made is just under 12 inches wide and just over 5.5 feet long. i wanted one slightly larger. i find myself using the first one more as a shawl in the office and a scarf every where else. i wanted one that i could do the same thing with only more comfortably.

thumbup you are caroljean. i made them and got a fabulous giggle yesterday. i was talking to my sister in law about the wedding and she said "i think kate's flowers were just gorgeous, ellie should use the same florist" i replied, she is, me! lol part of putting the pics out is to see how they are going to photograph. the girls finally figured out that how the flowers photograph means a lot more years later thumbup

that was some compliment your SIL gave to you--and right she was.

you know your girls are right---how the flowers photograph is important--how wise of them to think of it.

blush thank you carol jean. i'd love to take the credit, but i learned at my mother's knee, she was a professional floral designer and had her own shop off and on her whole adult life. i just do what she taught me about how to make the flowers work together.

alright, last picture for the night. this is the "baby" blanket i am making for my little sister. she is due in early may, but didn't want a baby-ish blanket, but rather one that was more suited for an older child. she remembered my girls carting their baby blankets around all the time as teen-agers! lol

the colors don't show well in the photograph, but it is cream, navy blue and sage.

That is an awesome baby blanket. I know exactly what your sister means by not too babyish. I bought Teddy blankets in multiples in colors I wouldn't mind seeing and trying to keep clean. But he never ended up a blanket baby. None of my kids did.

Jiffy--that too is a wonderful blanket--and your sister is right.
I know because:
valarie is going to be 28 this april--and she still has her baby blanket--and she has to have it with her in bed. and yes, it is pink with silk binding--not to mention a bit of lace or 2 for mending purposes. A "Blankie" like the one you are making your sister would be ever so much nicer now---your sister is very wise--and observant.
