New Baby / New House

Hello all - I just wanted to give you an update. This will probably be my last entry for awhile. Our little L'bug is due any day now and we are getting ready to move into our new home.
Lots going on for us - but I promise I will get back to making things and posting them
as soon as possible :o)
I do however have a wonderful blanket made by my mom that I couldn't resist posting!
The finished product is about 2' x 3'
The bunny is about 5" x 3
My Mom: loves wool (one might venture to say that she's a wool snob... for those knitters - she's totally a Zimmermann-follower) ...she reuses old wool / spins new wool / wants to own an alpacha to always have wool *hehe*
As much as she is in love with the wool itself she also loves to knit!
She made L'bug a beautiful blanket and bunny!!

If you'd like to purchase one - just let me know!
A blanket of this size is - of course - wool... and is priced at $150
The bunny (wool as well) is priced at $30
Here are some close ups!

It's an Elizabeth Zimmermann's Mystery Blanket April's Knitter's Almanac Project.
(It's in her book...Knitter's Almanac that has a project for each of the 12 months of the year...the blanket is April's project
Basically what that means is - you can't tell where the blanket has been started or stopped :)

Hope you like it - and talk to you soon
