Hoover Baby

 I have been knitting in the evenings.  Very slowly, I might add.
I chose this great pattern called the Hoover Baby Blanket.
It has a great story you can read about on Knitty.
It was written by First Lady Lou Henry Hoover, or at least historians have found a letter written in 1939 to Mrs. Hoover asking for the pattern.  I love the variations that knitters have tried.  I'm knitting it for a baby that has already arrived.  She may be done with blankies by the time I finish it. Here's precious Libby, I hope she won't mind.

But, I press on, little by little. I usually try something new in a pattern and this time it's double knitting.  I'm not sure I've quite conquered it, though.  And, as you can see, I have a way to go.
