Some More Baby Blankets

I knit furiously all the time, it seems. In the car (passenger seat only, never while driving!), while watching a movie or the news, and when "unwinding" from another peaceful day of retirement. I suppose I could knit and read at the same time--I've actually tried it--but it seems unnecessarily tense and a rather silly thing to do.

Lately, I've been finishing up several projects that were somehow all underway at the same time. Here are my Baby Blankets #9 and #10 for the local group that distributes them to new mothers. Both patterns are from A Treasury of Knitting Patterns, by Barbara G. Walker.

As always, the babies are not very critical. Good thing, too, because my leaf rows look a little windblown on that Traveling Leaf blanket.

Thank you both for leaving comments on my blog. It's always great to see who is reading.

Erikka, the pattern came from A Treasury of Knitting Patterns, by Barbara G. Walker. I wish my photo showed it in more detail, but I'm still a little frightened of my close-up lens. Got to get over that!
