Finished Just in Time

My nephew's birthday was today, but the party was yesterday. I had decided to make him a throw for his birthday, and then was worried that I wouldn't be able to finish it in time. It was originally going to be for Christmas... what was I thinking. Thank goodness my husband decided to come along for the party, or I would have been knitting and driving over to Ohio... not a good combination. I finished it in route and it turned out really nice, anyway I think it did. And I think he liked, it is hard to tell with boys .. . I mean young men. The pattern is from the Little Box of Throws and it is knit in Reynolds Utopia.

New on the needles this week is a shawl and the Baby Albert sweater. I hope to have them both finished by the end of the week. I will have pictures of them then.

I hope everyone has a safe and happy 4th

C.J. loves it. He is snuggled under it all the time. Benjamin didn't have a chance of stealing it once C.J. unwrapped it. You did good Sis, it's a hit. And driving and knitting don't mix, so I'm glad Tony came too.

Oh, Kaitlin is fine. At their age they don't need much taking care of, just feed them a few times a day and they're happy.
