I Won't Back Down

It is another day of hate as Prop 8 in California, the ban on gay marriage, stands.

But we won't back down. One day it will be equality for everyone and then no one can tell us our marriages and love are illegitimate.

Stand with us.

MJ's Baby Blanket

I had the pleasure to work on baby blanket with my Renton knitting group over the last 4 or 5 months for MJ, one of our members due in June.

We came up with the idea of knitting different squares in several different shades of green and purple. Angi who owns A Swell Yarn Shop was kind enough to put her expert yarn dyeing skills to use and supplied us with some wonderful yarn.

The yarn was then distributed to members secretly and each made one or more squares using different stitch patterns.

Here are pictures of my squares:

And here are the squares before we seamed them together. It was quite the puzzle to put together!

But Bella kept us entertained and we got it all seamed in one afternoon.

Here is MJ with her blanket at the baby shower we had for her:

Didn't it turn out beautiful?!?
