When I learned the news of my younger brother and his wife expecting child number three I knew immediately that I must knit a baby blanket. They had decided not to find out the sex of the child prior to delivery so I had to decide on a neutral color and pattern for the newest Baby Lowery.
Yellow always seems to be the "neutral" color everyone uses, however I am not a big fan of yellow and decided that a pretty spring like green would do the trick. The pattern I chose was one that I had admired for a while now and was pretty simple to make.
I still have some of the green Valley Yarns Superwash DK left over, I am thinking booties!!

As the world gathers in Vancouver tonight for the opening ceremonies of the 21st Olympiad, I along with thousands of other knitters will be watching and knitting. Knitters like a challenge and we have adapted our own sort of Knitting Olympics. I have picked my event, WIP Dancing and I will be challenged for sure!

This past Christmas I decided that I would knit my niece and nephew blankets because I have not yet, I was making their new baby sister or brother a blanket and lastly, why not?

You betcha! 2010 WILL BE a good year, I am going to make it the best year of my life. So either you are on board with me or get out of my way.
2009 was not so nice to me on several levels, especially the second half of the year, hence the lack of blogging. But after reading some blogs that have recapped the year I thought that would be a great start to this year. I am going to "borrow" Delia's recap idea (her year was much nicer than mine.)
January: Went to my families annual post Christmas Griffin Family Gathering. Lots-O-Fun, we do the gift stealing, this year I came home with a nut chopper.
February: Got a new DSLR a Cannon Rebel XSi (450D). And I went to Stitches West, it is in my back yard practically how could I not? And if you want to see my daily posts click on the following links, Day1 Day2 Day3 Day4
March: Spent the day with my niece and nephew in Bakersfield and took them to the park.
April: Went to Sensei's family reunion in Fresno, lots and lots of family. Also, had dinner with high school friends, Denise and Gina. It was great to catch up!
May: Sensei and I went to the Monterrey Bay Aquarium for the day, was a great day.
June: Was a sad month, but I am sure I did something fun ?!?! Points for someone that can tell me something good about this month.
July: Was a sad month, but I am sure I did something fun ?!?! Points for someone that can tell me something good about this month.
August: I went to the Sock Summit in Portland, Oregon and met Barbara Walker and Meg Swansen. My daily posts about SS09 can be found here, Day1 Day2 Day3 Day4 Day5 Out-takes
September: Reconnected with a couple of high school friends, Debbie and Michelle. We had lunch in Fresno and played catch up of almost 19 years!
October: Went to Bakersfield and watched my nephew play fall baseball and Sensei play in a tennis tournament. That is my brother pitching to his son, cute...
November: My sister-in-law and I cooked Thanksgiving dinner at my Mimi's house and we wore our new cute aprons that my friend Jill hand sewn for us.
December: I had a birthday. My younger brother and his family came up from Bakersfield to see me in San Jose and my mom in San Francisco. While in San Francisco, the girls (Mom, Crystal, Caitlin and I) went and had tea at Crown and Crumpets in San Francisco, that was wonderful. And I have lived in San Jose now for 5 years and this is the first year that I have been to Christmas in the Park. The kids really loved it and it was fun for me too!
