Finished Knitting Simple Lines Baby Blanket

 Hello Friends,


I hope you are doing well. My week has been going well. I can't believe it is already Thursday tomorrow, the weeks are just flying by! My nephew was born last Friday, April 30th. He is a healthy baby and mom, dad, and baby are doing well. I am still unfortunately not able to visit because of the stay at home order until the end of May. When I do go visit my family and see the baby, it will be even more special. 

The morning my nephew was born, I was knitting quickly, racing to get it finished, and I did! I finished knitting the Simple Lines Baby Blanket by Heather Tucker on Ravelry. It was a fun blanket to knit, and I liked that I quickly got used to the pattern, and could knit it and watch shows and vlogs. I love how it turned out and how soft and comfy it is and I hope my nephew enjoys snuggling with it.




Pattern: Simple Lines baby blankets by Heather Tucker on Ravelry

Yarn: Snuggly Wuggly yarn by Loops & Threads in the colorway "soft Gray"

Needles: US 6 - 4.0 mm circular needles


I haven't made progress on the cross stitch since the last post. I was focused on finishing the blanket on Friday, and then weaving in the ends this morning. I am still working on the leaves going all around the piece. I will be cross stitching more next week and hope to finish it soon.


I have been reading The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle, The Trainable Cat By John Bradshaw and Sarah Ellis, and Presence by Amy Cuddy. I have been enjoying learning more about cats reading The Trainable Cat. I have always had cats in my life, and it is interesting to learn more about them. Presence was another one I started this weekend, it is about being your best self and showing up at work and life. I am really working on "leaning in" at work as Sheryl Sandberg suggests to do in her book I recently finished called Lean In. So I am working on some assignments at work and trying to learn more skills and gain more knowledge. I am also enjoying reading as much as I can to learn more on bringing my best self to work.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today! I hope you are all doing well and staying safe! There is a lot of talk about vaccines here in Toronto, but I haven't gotten mine yet. They are being given out to people living in "hot spots" which are the most badly hit with the virus. I am waiting my turn, but we are looking forward to finally getting it. I look forward to being able to visit with my family and friends again like normal. I will be giving my nephew lots of snuggles. 

Have a great day!

  2. The blanket is beautiful, I'm sure your nephew will enjoy snuggling in that, it looks so soft. How lovely to have a new baby to knit for, I really enjoy knitting baby things but there's no one to knit for at present, it doesn't stop me though, one will come along eventually and then I'll have some ready made gifts.
