Baby oh Baby

I got home Saturday, and that's when he proposed - right at the airport! It was amazing. Rest assured that you'll hear about all the painstaking decisions on this blog. I plan to have a wedding that reflects me - very DIY in some respects but with some high-end taste, too. Expect the shoes to cost almost as much as the dress. I'm just sayin'.

So, Greece. It was amazing and I highly recommend it. I suggest that if you go, you pick two islands and spend a good amount of time at each. My favorite was Crete. Rhodes and Lindos were awesome - the water was so clear. Mykonos is definitely a party and beach spot, and Santorini is just so picturesque. I'll have to go back in this lifetime.

Throughout the entire trip, on every plane, ferry, and bus, I knitted this baby blanket for my co-worker's son due in July. Her shower was the day after I returned so it was essential I get my act together. I didn't wash it, she'll have to do that in whatever special baby detergent she has, but I did get a chance to add a hood and do a nice border. The blanket is worked in stockinette stitch and the border in garter. Boring
, I know, but I did put a little ducky in the corner (thanks for the suggestion, Annie!) that I think adds a little something. It's a little lumpy because I didn't wash it, but also because I didn't follow exact dimensions and didn't follow instructions as to how many stitches to pick up on each side (I did 1:1). I sed Vanna for Lion Brand Yarn in Aqua and Lamb. What do you think?
