I am SO ready to start Project #3.

It has been a crazy week. Between the 7" of snow, my daughter having tests for stomach issues, 4 little girls who are spreading their wings, and a 13 week old little guy who is now tired of laying down but to little to sit up, why am I not knitting?
After finishing the Grumpy Old Bear, I have been trying to figure out what to do next. I am DYING to start working on something from "itty bitty toys". However, I decided that for Project #3, I am going to start knitting the Baby's Texture Blanket on page 45 of "itty bitty nursery". I figure that I can use the Butterfly Mercerized Cotton I bought for the pacifier clips. I wasn't thrilled with the colors for the clips, but, I think they will be perfect for the blanket. Can't wait to get started.

Tonight I was my 6 year old granddaughter's "Special Person" at her Valentines party with her Moonbeams group. There were about 20 children, ages 3-6, all with their special person. We had such a good time. We colored, we played Valentine bingo, and we had treats. It doesn't get much better than that.

When we got home, Luiza asked for a washcloth, a mirror, a cup of water, and then said "Please, don't come in my room". 5 minutes later she emerged from her room stating, matter of factly, "Here is my tooth". She YANKED her front tooth out. It was loose. She's a hoot. She is such an old soul in a little body.

I want to knit the textured blanket too. But I haven't figured out what yarn to use.

I am VERY excited to see your completed blanket! I love this pattern but haven't done it yet myself.

And your grandgirl cracks me up! I was totally not able to yank out my own teeth when I was her age. I had to wait until they were ready to fall out on their own before I would remove them.

good luck with the blanket! I've added it to my favs on Ravelry so I can follow your progress. Go Itty Bitty Knittys!! Lol!

Love the pic, I remember yanking out my teeth too. I was slower in the tooth loss department for my age and I was always determined to catch up to my friends.
