Oh, congratulations on that new baby! If there is anything that will inspire a knitter, it's a new baby. :D

Aww, congrats Nannie!!! I can't wait till I can knit little booties and hats. Baby things are so cute! I'd like to do a baby blanket soon, even though I don't know anyone who's pregnant right now..LOL. But in my family, kids are always popping out, so someone should be pg by the time I finish a blanket :D

Oh, big time baby lover right here!! Congratulations!

On a side note, sort of, having a little boy first is extra special. Don't get me wrong about girls, as I hope I am blessed with a girl for my next one, but there is just something about a little boy coming up to you and planting a kiss on your cheek. You see them crash cars, break down lego towers, and I swear that smudge on his cheek is permanent, so when he suddenly comes over for a little snuggle and a kiss, it really lights up my day.

Again, congratulations!

Oh I agree, I actually have the girl first, and she is having the boy, she is 27 and I started over a few years ago and have a son 9 - and you wouldn't beleive he wants the video game Mortal combat but has to have a hug every time he walks by. And still plays with my hair. I was hoping for a girl for her though (payback?) love to shop for pink, but we will certainly take the boy. Also nice to have an older brother. I have 2 myself

Oh, that choked me up a bit. My boy loves to do that too. He's so gentle and to see him caress my hair with his little fingers....*grabs a tissue*

Congrats on becoming a gramma, Nannie Sue!

One of my friends has a toddler boy who is obsessive about playing with her hair. I forget what you call it, but it's become his version of a safety blanket, basically, so he's always touching it. It's really cute! At least she doesn't have to worry about misplacing a blanket!

Nannie Sue, just a tip on making the blanket. Be sure not to do it in stockinette stitch, because that will curl. ...happy knitting!

Amy

I have been working on the blanket a bit and I must say thank you for the video's I couldn't tell what to do by the pictures in my learn to knit video (boy I felt dumb) but your video's make it so much easier. I don't seem to hold the yarn the way you do though so I hope it still works the same. I am a lefty knitting righty. Thanks for all the congrats on my first grandchild, very nice of everyone.
Now I have to stop knitting and go clean the house
