Do any of you knitting people out there feel the same?
We got a baby's birth announcement in the mail a couple of weeks ago, when he was about 6 weeks old. My daughter volunteered to go select a great baby blanket yarn with my "little" boys (and stop for ice cream on the way, of course). She came back with this.
It was very bright and cheerful, but I didn't like it at all. It was hard to work with, because the extra yarn wrapped around the main strand was distracting. Plus, 3.5 ounces was only 72 yards, so it took 10 skeins, and I don't think this blanket was really big enough at 36"x42".
My daughter and Jeffrey both commented that it looks like Legos. They hope the baby likes Legos. I pointed out that at under 2 months, he likes his mama and not much else.
This is a close up of the blanket, for you knitters. I can't knit, but I can struggle along with crocheting. This was done with a G sized hook (the only one I could find).
And I asked Ryan to take one picture of the blanket, so I could email it to his sister, because she wanted to see how "her" yarn turned out. These are a few of the 25 or so he took before I threw the blanket over his head and my camera. The new camera is really fast! Hooray! It's like being back to pre-digital shooting!
