But page 2 was started on Jan11 and finished officially Jan 31. Go me!
His greedy little face is slowing starting to appear!
I have been waiting and waiting for a pattern to come in so I can break my own "one pattern at a time" rule and start a second, far quicker project. My best friend had a baby oh... about a month ago now, and even though I ordered an afghan and book "Forest Babies" from my local store back in November, there always seemed to be a hold up. Finally the book came in - only to find the wrong one had been ordered. Admittedly, Jungle Babies are adorable, but I live in the Pacific Northwest and Forest Babies actually jive with the types of animals we have right outside our door, and it just has more meaning. I didn't want to wait another 3 months for an order to come in, so I ordered from 123stitch, which actually had the pattern in stock. Hopefully it will be here this week, and I've heard that the afghan was shipped a week ago Tuesday.
I'm going to have to make it in record time, because I so far haven't bought her anything! I feel like such a bad friend. I usually knit a baby blanket for my friends when they have babies, but she knits circles around me, so an afghan x-stitch it is! My next pattern after Treasure Dragon will also be for her boy. Wouldn't you know, she picked a Heaven and Earth Design. Normally I do Christmas stockings for babies first Christmas, but she is Jewish. Sooooo, not really applicable there. I know I'm going to be doing Heaven and Earth designs until at least summer, and maybe beyond.
I'm not complaining though. I love big projects, and if I can make it for someone who I love dearly, then even better!
Well, it's on to page 3. I hope it goes as fast as page 2.
Wish me luck, my fellow kindreds!
