Well, on Sunday me and the G-town ladies went up to Milwaukee for Mel's bridal shower. We had a great time. It was wonderful see Mel, and it was wonderful to be able to give her some knitted goodness:I made her a bunch of warshrags (and I gifted her a table in a bag, so we can match when we go to Ravinia on the 13th. And honestly, everyone should have one of those. They are awesome!) Basically, it was some Mason Dixon knitting up in here. There was a ballband, a nine-patch, a mitered hanging towel, a baby genius warshrag, and a good ol' Mason Dixon dishcloth. A lovely collection if you ask me.

I have to be honest, I don't always knit for people for their various showers and celebrations. In some cases the people got married or whatever before I could really knit, or sometimes it's because I know the person will not really appreciate it.

There was no question that I would knit for Mel. She is a good egg. She appreciates this stuff so so much. And, I know they will be well-loved and used.

Anyone else have lots of wedding/baby knitting to do this summer? :)


  1. I don't have a wedding or baby, but I need to start on a blanket for my kid brother for his graduation in December from college. I have to figure something out that doesn't involve knitting with out rivals colors...

  2. Beautiful gift! Love the colors!

  3. those colours are beautiful! What is the pattern for the blue and purple cloth? (if you could either email or comment on my blog, that would be fantastic!)
    I'm 20, so very very few of my friends are getting married and/or having babies (thank goodness) so I don't have much knitting to do in that area.

  4. Jen,

    I love your knitting! LOVE IT! I was so excited to receive the stealth knitting project at my shower.

    I appreciate your knitting, but mostly I appreciate YOU!

    Thanks for being so amazing!!!!!

    Love you so much!


    PS- you will be happy to note that Tim's aunt (who made the afghan) also made me some dish cloths for my birthday! hooray for having yarn-talented friends/ family!!! :)
