I can't think of a catchy title

Thanks to everyone for the nice comments. I either don't look quite as scary as I think, or you all are really nice! Or you all lie, but I don't believe that one, at all!!

I finished the panta for my friend Cindy, but in the excitement of getting another project done, I rushed it over to her before taking a picture. Oops! It's been so crazy busy around here, I've been rushing around like a lunatic! Oh well, I guess that's just how life goes. It's better than doing nothing, being bored, right?

So, the things I'm working on haven't changed enough for new pics. I have the second jaywalker, a baby hat, the awesome scarf, another baby hat planned, a gift dishcloth just started, and I don't even know what else! As soon as I'm done here, I'm going to do a little knitting before the housework. That's right, I'm knitting first!

I have this really neat picture I felt like sharing, though. It's of a really old building that is being torn down. The old rotted (maybe burned) wood part is being knocked down and taken away, I don't know what they'll do with the stone part. It's so beautiful. It's also a lot bigger than the pic makes it look. I don't think they'll leave it or fix it, though. I want to run over and take some more pictures before it's gone forever.

Also, in other knit news, I can finally say the who is having a baby. Yay! My bestfriend, Lisa's sister is! I couldn't say anything, because my friend Carrie is one of L-sis's bestfriends, and she reads this blog (Hi, Carrie!). Lisa's sister wanted to be the one to tell Carrie. Luckily, Carrie didn't even imagine it would be L-sis.

I want to knit a blanket, and a couple of little hats, and who knows what else. The blanket I really want to knit is the pinwheel blanket. I think the blanket is by Genia Planck. I'm afraid it will take me forever, though. Life keeps slowing down my knitting!!

So, I am going to go knit, and think about my sweater, and the blanket. I have to decide the blanket way before the sweater. Knit on, everybody!!

That is a beautiful blanket! I may have to use that one one day--I wish someone else would have a baby already.

Aw, a baby a baby. I want to knit for a baby. So dinky and cute.

I like the pinwheel blanket. That should be fun to knit.

I think sometimes titles are the hardest part of blogging! Great picture, and glad you got some knitting time!

You're planning the blanket first?? Just be careful, because doing something for yourself is important, too. Besides.... It takes a Loooong time to make a baby, doesn't it? Heehee

What a gorgeous old building - places like that always have a sort of beautiful sadness, no?

Congrats on the baby - I LOVE knitting for tots! Everything goes much faster... :)

Oh I wonder what it was. Too bad they are tearing it down; sometimes I like seeing old ruins become part of the landscape.

Cool building, it's a shame that it's being dismantled. I hate to see historical places get lost.
