Baby Slippers and Blanket Squares

I am making little baby slippers!
Ravelry here.

This yarn is even more beautiful in colour;
a bright ruby red...
It is being made into squares for a small blanket.

I am making a baby blanket of blue and yellow squares...
my cousin is having a baby boy... :)

I am finally getting around to reading
Mat. Constantina's book
(Some of my Orthodox blog friends have already 
written on this book, here and here).
It is an easy read, like the longer Russian book 
Simple stories that teach things gently...
I am finding it encouraging and engaging. 
Great Lent is coming soon ~ and I am finding this 
read to be something that is preparing ~ and encouraging ~ 
me for this.
I have sock yarn coming in the mail... with
size 1 DPNs... 
I am hoping to start on these
 by the beginning of Lent...
Mr. Husband only wants me to knit him socks,
so socks it will be! 
I am using an older pattern from my Oma's 
and am really excited about this.
What are you reading and creating?
Yarn along with us!

What a nice gift that will be....a baby blanket. ♥ I have hopes of making one for my sister who is due next month!

You will enjoy sock knitting. :) So many wonderful projects and colors with which to create them. A baby blanket is on my needles currently -- an unfinished one I "adopted" from my daughter-in-law who gave up on it. For me it is a labor of love. :)

You are making lots of neat stuff! I cannot believe Lent will be here soon. It feels like we are just getting over Christmas. Enjoy!

I have had so much fun making socks! Admittedly, only baby socks so far, but you have to start somewhere. ;) I am also enjoying my size 1 dpns which I just got on our recent trip. So much better than the size 3s! Have fun!

can't wait until I have a few more projects on the needles too! Sock yarn in the mail sounds exciting! Got the inklings book at the library today -- you were the one that recommended right? Sometimes I space that stuff.....

You have big knitting plans!
