Since shortly after Christmas, I've been knitting 8x10" (more or less) sized blocks in various patterns and colors to add to those left over from the last big blanket. One will be for our 6+ year old grandson and one for our 8+ year old granddaughter. Eventually, I will deplete my yarn stash. Slowly but surely, my hands are able to knit but I know not to overdo.
Hope you're having a good 2011 so far.... most of us have had lots of snow which makes life interesting and beautiful.
