Beautiful Baby Blankets

My sister-in-law came over for coffee today. She has been laid off from her job and has been waiting on a decision process for another. She says she walks on the treadmill an hour a day and knits. She looks great and her knitting is spectacular. She showed my three baby blankets and a baby outfit complete with hat and booties. I need to practice a lot more at my knitting. Sometimes it is good to see what a finished project should look like, not just that it keeps you humble but it gives you something to strive for. I am sorry that she lost her job but I am delighted that she has time to come over for coffee. I even baked a coffee cake, by myself (with the help of Betty Crocker).

She knits while walking on the treadmill? I'm pretty sure I would fall and crack my head open.

Thank you for such kind words. It's nice to show off my knitting to someone who appreciates the work that goes into it. The treadmill helps keep my body in shape, and the knitting is to keep my mind in shape. Now, if I can find something to keep my bank account in shape, I will really be doing something! The coffee cake was delicious, by the way!
