Knitting --- Yup, I'm still Knitting

Well, whenever I find the time! It's slow going, but I'm determined to get all my pre-job planned Christmas presents knitted! :)

BUT, first is this baby blanket. I started it a few weeks before I started working...currently, it's a 1/4 of the way done. I think I posted this picture before...but here's the begining of it...

The blanket part itself is more than 1/3 finished...not quite half...but then there is the four inch mitered border that going to take awhile! :) This blanket is for our new neighbor; she is due in October. And, I also want to make her 4 year-old son a rainbow colored scarf. Here's a close up of the basket weave pattern. It's pretty and a lot easier than I thought it would be. Just knit and purl! ;)

Oooh pretty! I'm still trying to finish #2 child's slippers for preschool. Jackie in Vegas helped me redo that pattern (you remember the Bethany Booties one from Berroco) a couple of months ago and I got one made and haven't had time since. They are also in a pretty purple colour. Wonder if I can get that slipper started and finished by Wednesday?! Not likely!!

I tried learning to knit once from my great aunt, but she gave up and said I was hopeless! :)
