A Nephew is Born!!

Our nephew was born on Nov 14, 2008. His name is Santiago and he lives in Mexico. He is the son of Diego's sister and the first grandchild in the family. Diego's parents are ecstatic! We are looking forward to meeting him!!

In celebration of his arrival I have been busy knitting a baby blanket. This was a huge endeavor because I have only ever knitted a scarf. I tried a feather and fan lace pattern but couldn't get it right. I started over at least 4 times! This was frustrating as time was drawing near! So I opted to just knit the whole blanket and add a fringe on two of the sides.

I am on my last ball of yarn and hope to have it completed in the next couple of weeks. It will not be anywhere near perfect but I think this will make a nice Christmas present. I will keep you posted on the progress!
