Finished! April 18, 2005

Filed under: Uncategorized — katy @ 3:17 pm

Everything’s fine but it always a scary phone call to receive…Owen’s bus company.  I dread hearing an accident but it was only a breakdown.  He will be home shortly.  I decided to seize the moment and photograph my finished baby blanket for my friend Maria.  Like other bloggers, I thought I would have an outdoor photoshoot but I was a little concerned putting the baby blanket on an evergreen bush and some of the other bushes in the yard are a bit smelly.  I did bring it outside to give it a try and two bugs landed on it.  I plan to wash it anyway but things were getting a little out of hand. 


This is a Fiber Trends Easy Lace baby blanket pattern that I purchased a long time ago.  The yarn is Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece in putty.  I bought it off of Granny’s sale table.  Half price!  It’s soft and spongey and perfect for my best friend from high school who is due to have her first baby in June.  She is also the friend that introduced Kevin and I.  I am also proud of being finished way ahead of schedule.  Now I must return to some of my other unfinished products.

Last set of interview questions tomorrow.

    It’s beautiful and might be just a perfect knit for my newest niece or nephew due in November.

    Perfect blanket to wrap a new little one. No Brigid work here. too much on the plate to add a new knit. Will I ever start it? Who knows.

    Bus accidents – sounds scary, glad Owen is ok.

    It is beautiful, Katy! looks so soft and cuddly. Sorry about Owen’s bus – your heart must’ve dropped when you answered that call!

    Ahead of schedule? Girl, I can hardly see the due date — it’s weeks away (my sis is due w/#1 then, too). Yay for you! Returning to other unfinished projects — are we to see some more FOs?

    Extra hug for Owen tonight, he was probably worried, too!

    Pretty blanket for a special baby! Very nice! I still haven’t attached the edging onto my baby blanket. When I do, I owe you a photo! =)

    Cotton Fleece is the PERFECT yarn for a baby blankie, and that pattern is so nice. It’s probably going to be their favorite. Sorry about the bugz, though. What a pain.

    It looks great! 🙂
    All babies deserve a hand knit blanket – I’m just too lazy to knit them 😉
