Despite the hot weather here in SoCal last week, I've been knitting up a storm. I just started knitting this baby blanket for my sister - woo!
I don't think I've shared the news yet here, but one of my sister's (I have 3) is expecting again! Wooooo! I love being an aunt! It's like the best of both worlds. You get to hang out and love a cute little kiddo but still get a full nights sleep. I love my sleep. A lot.
That being said, I just started this chevron baby blanket pattern. I'm using a pattern from Purl Bee (love their patterns and blog!) and it's coming along rather quickly. It's knit on size 11 circular needles and is a relatively simple pattern if you're a beginner knitter. I highly recommend it!
It's going to be striped white, light gray, and light green. I bought a skein of yellow too, but can't decide if I like it combined with the green...we'll see what happens there. They aren't finding out the sex of the baby so I am trying to keep it to neutral colors.
In other news, Ryan just has 1 more month of school!!!! Yay!!! : D
