OTN: (on the needles) and goal updates

I figured i was long over due for a blog post. It's February already i cannot believe it. This month we are celebrating my Mom's bday and Noah our baby is turning 1 next week on the 10th. My boyfriend's grandma's bday is today as well. This is going to be a mixed post about what i am currently working on knitting wise and my new years goals. 

Right now on my needles i have a blanket for Noah. The blanket is going to be a late happy first bday present. I am making in it shades of blue to fit his bed which is twin size. I am following a pattern and knitting a bunch of fish and sewing them all together into one big blanket. I am hoping to get the blanket done this month but we will see how everything goes. Here is a photo of what the first of the fish look like for his blanket:

One of my bigger goals for the new year is to donate 100 baby hats of any size to charity/a good cause. I have put a small start on my goal by donating 6/100. I am donating 6 more this month and that will make it to 12. Once the warm weather comes, i am looking forward to lots more knitting while the babies play outdoors. Here are my 6 newly donated hats, the lady i sent them to was kind enough to take this great photo of them for my use and her scrap book.

It's been a good year so far and its only Feb. I am hoping the rest of 2011 is great and everyone gets to accomplish something they have wanted to. I want to end my post with warm hugs for a close friend who went through a lot of crap yesterday and needs lots of love and positive thoughts, love you girl.
