On The Needles

I don't know...I hate having nothing to do. So whenever I have to sit and wait for my kids (like at piano lessons), or watch TV, I knit....I'm not a great knitter, but I enjoy it...only squares and rectangles, though; I have never tried anything fancy.

So right now I'm working on this cute baby afghan. It's a feather and fan pattern, and is one of my favorites. When we lived in Michigan, I would knit this in a wool/acrylic blend. Now that we live on the West Coast, I just do it in baby soft acrylic (it doesn't get that cold here)...
I have the hardest time finishing these though; like what if it is for a big baby?...this one is close to being done, but I keep measuring and I think, "oh, just a few more inches would be better..."

This is beautiful! I'm just teaching myself to knit and I really enjoy it. This pattern is really pretty.
