An explaination and Here are some of my FO's

I thought I would explain a little bit about my health issues so those friends of mine from out of town that read my blog don't freak out and think the worst. I was recently diagnosed as being bipolar and have been undergoing medication trials to see which one works best for me. A lot of times I am not able to blog due to the fact I can't keep my thoughts straight enough to blog. But knitting helps me focus so I've been working on stuff. All the pictures tonight are FO's for DH's cousin's baby except for the last one. Here is a baby blanket I just finished. Its a blanket based on the diagonal dishcloth design. The first picture is a close up of the stitch pattern:






I also made a pair of Mary Jane booties for the same baby.

I also made this really cute bunny buddy.
http://cache.lionbrand.com/patterns/50722.html I made it with cotton so it could be used in the bath tub and I stuffed the head with the extra yarn instead of filler.

The last picture for tonight is of Drew (my ham) holding the yarn that I spun Wednesday night at our local SnB. I think I'm addicted. Our SnB group is going to Morengo Illinois to The Fold
http://www.thefoldatmc.net/ for her Annual January 1st sale.

Hi, there... my sis is bipolar, and once the meds are straight (which took a while), her life is much much better. Just stay on top of it and hang in there!

I love the color of the baby blanket. Good work. Drew is always so cute. I know boys are suppose to be handsome as my boys are but he is a cute kid. I love his rosy cheeks in the pictures. I hope once the meds get straighten out, things will be better for you. I did miss you and checked everytime I checked blogs.
