square update!

Good afternoon all-- long time, no post!

I have a total of 17 blocks for the blanket. I know that Cheryl and Becky are still working on squares and Katie has one to give me today-- that will give us 20, which will be a very large and wonderful blanket.

I'll give Katie's mom the first 17 to start putting together. I was thinking they could be in rows of 5. What do you all think?

It's a Boy!!!!

To capture the moment a bit, I excerpted the announcement email and found some fun facts about the baby's birthdate. Congratulations Beth and Daniel!

The baby was born on July 25, 2007 at 4:24 pm. He is 6 pounds and 17 3/4 in. long. We're going to announce his name to the world at large next Wednesday, but for now the hospital has him listed as 'Master (Last Name)' which has a very nice ring to it. Maybe we'll just stick with that. Mom, baby and Dad are all doing great. He has full head of hair, sharp fingernails and is devastatingly cute.

More to follow later.

Daniel & Beth

Your baby's birthstone is Ruby (Contentment)
Your baby's Astrological Sign is Leo
Your baby's Flower is Larkspur or Water_Lily (Green, Russet and Red )
Your baby was born in the Chinese Year of The Pig
Your baby will start kindergarten in 2012, be old enough to drive a car in 2023, finish high school in 2025, and will graduate from college with the class of 2029, give or take a year. Can you imagine? This time last year you weren't even pregnant yet!

How're we doing?

Hey, Mimi-- How many squares do we have? Do we need any more to make it A.) come out even, or B.) big enough?

I'm thinking Katie's mom will want to get to assembling it pretty soon, yes?

Woo Hoo! Finished??

Hey all!
I've finished knitting my square. Now I just need to block it somehow so the cables are defined (never blocked acrylic before). Any tips?

I never got on here and told you all that the lavender dragonfly square I had started for Beth got destroyed by her ...

I caught her in the act of unraveling it about a week ago. I did see that someone else was also doing the lavender dragonfly so at least that's good!
