Look what I got in the mail! We have a grand-nephew arriving very soon. I had been collecting ideas for a baby blanket but got sidetracked by our vacation. When I saw the Yarn Barn catalog at a friend's house, I decided to opt for a kit, and I wish I would have ordered it at that time. We will have a baby before I have a blanket.
I love the bright colors and plan to skip the hat. It doesn't do anything for me. I think the hat is 4" of the weaving length and I'll probably just add it on to the blanket. I won't be able to wind this warp until Thursday and will warp front-to-back, just to be safe.
Charlie fell in love with the box the kit came in. He pushed it all over the counter and then off the counter and then all over the floor. He was so funny that I knew it would be a great photo op. I had the camera on and walked around the counter, but he heard me coming, left his new toy, walked toward me and sat down. What box? I don't know anything about a box.
I was reminded of a friend whose five-year-old daughter came into the kitchen with her hands behind her back, rocking a little from side to side, and stated: "Nobody wrote on the washing machine with crayons."
He got another pretty ribbon!
