So, for the first time in my life... I have finished a knitting project. Now, this may not seem like a big deal to you, but let's just say that I was working on cross stitching a bib for my brother that I still have at the bottom of my craft basket. My brother is now 13 years old.
So, please let me have this moment and please excuse the crappy photography.
This pattern is awesome. Stick-Legged Girl is really a great blog with great idea. This blanket was perfect for a first project because you get to use so many different colors. which breaks the work up in a fun way. I'm sad because the colors are much cuter than they look in these photos. Additionally, I must confess something... this blanket is only about 1/3 of the size that its supposed to be. The pattern is much larger. But you know what? I'm a cheap bastard when it comes to yarn, and it is fine for an infant, so just let me have this moment!
Next stop for this blanket: Project Linus Now I just need to figure out the next project. Knitting is a fabulous winter time activity and is ideal for dieting - because you have something to do with your hands.
