I'm a bit old to be starting out in life again, but that's where I am. Sadly. Or gladly. It's where I am. Come along. Watch the fun. Inch by inch, row by row, gonna make this garden grow.

The Finished Log Cabin baby blankie

Without question, this was the coolest blanket I ever made, and possibly the most fun I ever had knitting. It just kept changing and changing. As each color strip was added, the character of the whole piece would morph entirely, as you can see from the pictures. I loved making this, and I loved the finished product.. I gave it to my Jen (my hairdresser) the night before her last day of work. She loved it, and left it displayed at her work station while she worked on my hair. I could have taken 6 commissions that night to make more of these.
Jen had a boy, by the way, and named him Jasper. I am sooo glad I didn't go with pastels or a lacey stitch!

Welcome to the world, Jasper. I hope this blanket made your first winter warmer.

Welcome to this world Jasper. Ginny, you did a lovely job on that blanket. That's a nice and unique pattern.

I loved the Otter story.

Ginny,
Fresh fish tastes nothing like restaurant frozen fish. We've had cobia & mahi so good that it makes a prime steak taste bad. (or what I remember red meat tasting like). Every fish has a unique flavor and there are some bad ones out there (oily). I'll be glad to cook for you and well, you'll have to talk to Lil' Man about borrowing the hot rod. :o) I'm sure he will share.
