The Story Blanket
Friday. 4.1.11 8:45 pm
Will (hopefully...) look like THIS when finished....

It was supposed to be orange with Navy Blue trimmings....but orange as a baby yarn wasn't really in big supply....

so, change of direction!

A beautiful navy blue called "ocean" will be used, and once we find out the sex and name of the baby, i'll add some embroidery onto it. The baby's name/initials and a flower/boat/cat/butterfly or something (Nutang Poll question, maybe?).

Here are my photos!

This is the yarn that I choose.

And these are the size 11 circular needles I'll be using.

Up next? Work in progress photos!

First day on Nutang.

Things I have accomplished today:
Set up Nutang Account
Fiddle around with backgrounds and HTML codes for Nutang.
Eaten a small pizza.

I don't suppose that counts for alot....
I think I'll don my gardening gloves and go trim the trees up a little bit before my boyfriend gets home. That way it looks like I did something other than NuTang all day. lol.

Ok, so purpose of this blog:

My boyfriend absolutely sick of hearing about it, and as a result...so are all my friends. Thusly, I have decided to talk knitting to myself and the internet because the internet won't shun me.

9 knits in 9 months.

I'm new to the knitting game, but so far, I LOVE it. alot.
I plan to get good at it too. Only one way to do that...practice.
So, the way I see it is this: if I force myself to knit a project every month it'll encourage me to learn new methods and to actually accomplish something other than looooong scarf like looking objects where I practice my stiches.

First up on the list is a baby blanket.
My friends "The Story's" are having their second bundle of joy in November. I'd like to have the blanket done at least before the baby arrives, but soon enough so that once they choose the baby's name, I can embroider it onto the blanket.
It's going to be an orange basketweave blanket with the name in a bright navy blue (the mom's favorite colors).

Now that I have made my decision on which pattern and colors the next step is finding the materials and beginning. I'll keep you (whoever 'you' are....) posted with pictures and works progress features.

Snazzy, huh?
