Knitting Update

Saturday, April 13, 2013

In the Stash Buster challenge I chose to knit a wrap and did not think it would knit up so quickly. So I have completed it already

I added the flowers to brighten it up, the cuffs and flowers are scarlet not orange the camera does not always get the colours right.

So now I am embarking on another project in the April Stash Buster Challenge, making 8 inch squares for a blanket. I have 984nyards to use up in DK yarn so I should get a few squares out of that.

The baby blanket for Sands Charity is doing well I have the border to make for the top and bottom and it will be done. When it is complete I will post a picture of it.

This weekend I give Dean and Chizzy (Son and DIL) all the things I have knitted for their baby my Grandchild I am looking forward to doing this, I really hope they like what I made, 3 blankets, 2 sets of cardigan , bootee and hat, 5 toys.
So Sunday dinner and then the gift giving, I am excited and nervous all in one why I should be nervous about this I have no idea. Maybe because it is the first time I have been able to make something for a Grandchild. My other 4 Grandchildren do not know me and I had nothing to with them, their Mothers ( my Daughters) choice not mine. So maybe I am a little nervous as I am finally going to be a real Grandmother and I want things to be just right.

Sunday 19:45 GMT
Dean abd Chizzy have gone home and they love the things I made for the baby emoticon The big rainbow blanket was the last otem they opened and Chizzy exclaimed 'WOW that is amazing I love it thank you. You added all the colours I love' I was so pleased.

    Beautiful wrap, Paula! You are such a talented lady! emoticon I am sure that your son and DIL will cherish the items you have lovingly made for their baby--I know that I would! emoticon

I understand the feeling of being ostracized by a child; it seems to me that no one can hurt us as much as our own children can...I have an adult son that I have little contact with; and, he and his wife lost custody of their children-as a result, I am not able to see them either. emoticon You can only surround them in light and love and pray for the best... The loss is to your daughter and the children in not having contact with you! emoticon emoticon

Love and Bright Blessings to you, Pam emoticon

    May you be really blessed tomorrow as you share and give your beautiful handiwork to you children (son and DIL) for your grand child! Being a grandmother is such a special gift from GOD and it is wonderful when children realize that. May your daughters come to understand that as well. All best, Nellie

    I'm sure you will be a wonderful Grandmother to this child and I'm sure your son and Chizzy will cherish your beautiful needlework. You are a wonderful knitter and I'm sure their little family will treasure these items.

    I love the wrap! Very pretty. Will the blanket squares be a specific pattern or a variety?

I'm sure your son and dil will love what you've made for the baby. How exciting!

I'm so sorry to hear that you don't have a relationship with your daughter or her children. I hope that changes for you some day. emoticon

    Your knitting is very good! I know what you mean about cameras and not getting the colors right. It happens to me too. I'm sorry your daughter doesn't let you see your other grandchildren. One of my sons has disowned me and refuses to see me. It has made me very sad, I thought I was the only one who was treated this way by a adult child. emoticon
