My second “Big Bad Baby Blanket” is finished, well almost. It needs some blocking which will be done tomorrow.
This time around it felt like forever.
I am hoping that my friend/tattoo artist and his wife like the color. The brand of yarn I picked for this project doesn’t come in a large variety of colors and I don’t like using obvious baby colors. Since fall is coming this dark grey just jumped out at me and made me feel cozy.
It is knit with Caron Simply Soft in charcoal. I usually don’t care for this yarn but when it comes to baby knits, it is washable and if it stretches out from use it will shrink back to size when it is washed. Washable is super important! If I make another one I am going to look into using a different yarn, maybe from KnitPicks or something.
On to the next project!
Waiting for purse handles from Hong Kong - taking forever! SO large purses are on hold for the moment. I am working on a little pouch/accessory bag to keep me busy while I am waiting. I like how it is turning out but I think my gauge is a little tighter than it should be. Hopefully the finished product turns out.
I have a long list of project ideas I want to try out for my esty shop - so I am going to be a pretty busy girl this summer. I hope I can make a few more sales when I put some summery things up.
Back to the needles and How I Met Your Mother. (just started this a few days ago on netflix - I was missing out!)
(Also, dog feet are cute).
