Baby Blanket

This blanket is for a good friend who now has her second grandchild. I have known her since I moved to the Deep South (34 years this July). I use to knit and crochet for her daughter all kinds of niceties years ago. Now I have the opportunity to knit blankets for both of her grandsons. Time sure does fly by. The blanket is an easy knit from the book Simple123 Knitting. I added one more pattern repeat as I didn't like the length. I will probably make this one again for gift giving in the future.

Helmet Liners

Finally! I have taken the time to post about the helmet liners I knit before Christmas for our guys in uniform. It took me more time than I care to admit, but I finished them so that they could be sent off. The ladies at our church made over 40 helmet liners. My contribution is shown above. My hope is that they will keep our soldiers warm. God bless and keep all our troops safe!
