A few things for September

Life is starting to get back to whatever passes for normal around here, and I'm sure hoping to get back to a regular blogging schedule. Sorry, Dotty!

I have been knitting, because it sure clears out the stress in my head.

One pair of socks for Trish -- DONE!

One entrelac baby blanket -- Done! I'm particularly fond of the single yellow square in this blanket. It's for one of my colleagues who's a great graphic designer, so I thought it was a fun touch for her new baby, which is due in the next couple of weeks. This is the second entrelac blanket I made for her. The first one was for her first son, who's a few months younger than Andrew. His "soft blankie" goes everywhere with him, and he sleeps with it every night. When she told me that, it made me feel all soft and fuzzy inside.

And to give you an idea of the scale of the blanket, here are a pair of Fetchings that I made for mommy-t0-be. I'm giving Fetchings to all my co-workers this Christmas, and figured I had to get hers done before she went away on her maternity leave.

And last, but not least -- two sleepy children, almost ready to give mommy and daddy a break.
Now I'm just scared about how much Christmas knitting I still have to do. Last time I checked my list, I had knitting to do from now until the end of November.

Nice socks! That's 3 pairs for Trish and only 9 more to go.
