Ordinary Days

The ordinary days just keep rolling along. I knit these socks for a lady I've never met. I hope she likes them!
This is the finished blue blanket. The baby has been born, baby,mother and grandmother are happy. I tried crocheting a border but this blanket screamed to me that it needed a garter stitch border. So I picked up and knit top and bottom and then knit long strips for the sides. Not the most ideal way to do things but it worked. I'm hoping that the grandmother will like it.
When I drop off jobs I always wonder how they will be received so far I think everyone has been happy.
I keep thinking about what a nice garden will be here in a few more months. I see peas climbing on the fence and bunches of fresh lettuce growing on the nice dark rich soil. I might be over in one of the chairs having a glass of coffee or wine.
It will be spring.

oh the days of spring will eventually come...waiting is hard though isn't it? I am amazed by both of your projects. There's no doubt in my mind that everyone would be totally thrilled with your work.

Yes. Spring will be here, eventually. In the meantime, I'm getting ready for it by stitching and knitting spring-worthy fun stuff!

The days are getting longer....Spring is coming. I think that garter stitch is perfect for that baby blanket. You had a vision and it worked (mine usually don't). I'm sure everyone loves your handiwork.

Ordinary days are the best, aren't they? And your snowy garden looks beautiful! Lovely little blankie and socks too, and I can't imagine that the receivers of these sweet things could be anything other than delighted!
