I did however, knit up a couple of these adorable easy knitted bangle bracelets for 2 of my granddaughters who I know will love them. I'm going to knit 4 more so they each can have 3 and use different colors for each one. I got the pattern from Ravelry, what else (and did I say how much I love that site)?
I'm making quite a bit of progress with my baby shells blanket. This picture is not current but you can see what the pattern looks like just the same. I'm about 1/2 to 3/4 finished now and hopefully when I post again here, the blanket will be completed. It's actually not for any little wee one in particular but if a certain son and his wife have a baby girl (it's their first, due in late July) then it's theirs.
I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and I wish all of you (if anyone is still checking out my blog) a happy, healthy, and blessed new year in 2014.
