The Expected: a fast-topic-changing Friday!
The Promised: The pattern for the Renee Baby Blanket, in celebration of my niece’s being-born-day!
I have a few more details on Molly Renee…she is 21.5″ long, with curly dark hair. Personality-wise, she’s really laid-back…sleeping straight through her first night, even. She’s a pretty girl, and a relaxed baby.
|The Renee Blanket.
A lovely combination of lace, warmth, and wash-ability.
This pattern uses 400 grams (8 skeins) of Dale of Norway Baby Ull, or 1440 yards of a substitute yarn with 6 stitches to the inch.
|Five bucks buys you an instantly-downloadable PDF file, which includes the pattern, lace chart, photos, and the Renee Blanket story.
|I had a strange sensation when I stepped outside early this morning.
It was the sensation of not sweating.
Could it be? Might I make it through this Texas summer??
|I can’t be the only one this happens to. Relaxing in the evening, knitting on a pair of socks, drinking some wine. I take a sip of wine, and DANGER! Needle! Eye!
It’s all about living’ on the edge, I suppose.
Yes, that’s orange soda. It was a little early in the day.
|The dogs got…|
|Stinky new chew hooves yesterday.|
|I think giving dogs chew hooves must be like giving human children a new video game.
I didn’t hear a peep from them for hours. Aside from the crunching, of course.
|I couldn’t have handpicked a better fortune for myself.
Have a great weekend!
