OK. I'm really making a conscious effort not to get baby crazy with the knitting, quilting and purchasing, but please, how cute is this blankie?
It's the Wild Stripes baby blanket from this summer's knitty. Love it! Love the colors, love the stripes, love the booboolie bloppity french knot thingies,... Love it so much that I ordered the yarn and EVERYTHING.
Since the pattern is simple stockinette, I'm sorely tempted to get out the knitting machine and give it a go that-a-way. The constant color changes may prove to be a huge pain in the ass, as you have to rethread the machine for every one, but why not? I'll try pretty much anything once!
I received confirmation for my Stitches West classes in the mail yesterday, and it looks like I'm in and good to go with both my classes – yay!
