Longest ever work in progress…

So after 3 years ,almost to the date,  I completed  my longest ever UFO (unfinished object) , my mini-smashlee's baby blanket. For those who don't know, she's over 2 1/2 now. I started this project when I found out I was having a baby girl and vowed to finish it before I gave birth. Obviously, …

Mostly, this was due to morning sickness, or should I say all day sickness but, since I'm past that oh-so-important 3 month mark in my pregnancy, it seems to have subsided for the most part.

I think every knitter has a preference for needles.

When I first started to knit, I was a …
