Make it Monday

This week for "Make it Monday," I decided to show off my knitting talent. Elijah's first birthday is coming up in July so I'm getting prepared. I made a cute banner with his name on it. Of course, his party will be red, blue and white (not because his birthday is a day after July 4th). The theme of his party will be teddy bears. I bought some bear plates, cups, etc and the colors were red, white and blue so that is the main reason for my color decision. Anyway, I had to make a total of 12 triangles since I had to make two per letter. Then I learned how to do a basic single crochet stitch for the letters and poof...done. It did take me awhile. But, it is finally done.

Since I'm throwing my friend Melissa a baby shower this weekend, I'm in the process of making another banner. I'm only doing eight this time to spell out BABY. I'll show you pictures of the shower next week. Let me know what you think. I love to read your comments! Till next time...
