The weather has been spectacular, I know that because I said that it will now get cold again!
I am also determined that one of my YOP blankets is going to be the granny stripe. I also felt really bad about the Baby Bundle 2 Blanket being so little. It's perfect for new borns and to have for the Snug 'n Safe but once the baby is over 3 months, it's going to be too small. I did say I would make a bigger one. I got out the Ice Cream colours I had left over and started a chain, to be honest I lost count as I was watching the BLUE BULLS beat the Leopards.
I hoped and prayed that I did in multiples of 3, then to top it all off I was too lazy to go to the computer and read the pattern online, so I made it up. Now the first row I remembered was single crochet (or double crochet in UK) then I think it was a group of 3 double crochet (treble crochet in UK) and then skip 2, and so on and so on. I am now pretty sure that's wrong, but I can fix it when I do the border as I have a lopsided first row of groups. Anyway not to worry I think so far it looks STUNNING!
I have a cunning plan, I have a few stitch patterns I would like to try out and am planning on making baby blankets with all of them first out of my left overs and then if I am happy turn them into big blankets.
The reason for all this experimentation and not committing to anything is that the RWC starts in 13 days I have my RWC blanket to start. I am itching to knit however, so might make a pullover for Pudding while I'm waiting. 13 days is such a long time.
