I said "tomorrow" on my last post, but writing again Saturday was about good enough because we ended up on an adventure on Wednesday and Thursday!  Joe's sister, brother-in-law, and their son Jacob flew in on Wednesday but unexpectedly missed their morning flight so rather than wait for them to regroup and drive down to Pueblo we drove ourselves to Denver, stayed in our house (still ours until July 30th) and had a very nice visit until we drove home late Thursday night.  Yesterday I have no excuse for :) 

But I've mentioned a time or two I wanted to knit a baby blanket, or that I finally DID start knitting, and here's the progress so far:
Pretty good, eh?  At least pretty big, eh?  It has an alternating square pattern that's hard to see, but it DOES have texture (even if I'm not talented enough to do colors). I felt sure enough after the ultrasound that we're having a girl that I picked purple, but the longer I knit the less sure I am!  If we have a boy I will BUY a blanket for the new baby and Caroline can just have this one because I'm not spending another 3,000 hours knitting something in blue.

So next time I have a baby you're knitting another one, right?

You did such a great job Kirsta! Knitting is totally on my list of learning how to do someday. It looks terrific!
