When I first began this project, I wasn't thrilled with the pattern. I'm so used to knitting for a boy or girl, that knitting in neutrals for gender unknown wasn't thrilling me. But as each square and rectangle was added, I really began to like the growing blanket. I am definitely knitting this in a heavier wool and bigger size and making it for my house in cranberries, greens, and golds. I'm now knitting newborn caps for the gender unknown baby to go with the blanket - and I'm doing it Magic Loop style!
In the meantime, I got to spend a little time with my sister, my mom, my boys and my friend - Roxanne at Demarest Farms in Hillsdale, NJ. We picked pumpkins, ate food, drank coffee, bought homemade pies and vegetables - and had a great time... And the boys are so big!
