So beautiful, Milla!  I'm sure they will treasure this, & it will be passed on for generations.  :)

  You said she is due in June? Early or later?  My sister is due with her 2nd baby girl on May 30.  We can't wait to meet her as well.  They wll call her Nora.

Thank you Styyna! :-* What about your knitting projects?

I've kind of lost my knitting mojo recently. Life hasn't had lots of opportunities for nice, long knitting sessions and that's what I need to finish the baby blanket (just one strip to knit and then all the strips must be stitched together) and to knit the lace shawl. The lace shawl is almost certainly going to end up being a first anniversary gift rather than a wedding gift.

Between dealing with our ailing pets, cleaning our home from top to bottom, and closing a remote office and bringing all the files and equipment to our home I've had little time to sit and knit.

My goal is to have lots of time in June to devote to knitting.

Once your house is in tip top shape, and it sounds like you're almost there, your gonna want to do something with your spare time and you'll get your mojo back!   :)
