Show and Tell

I've been playing with the camera and it'll take me some time to work the bugs out and figure out what I'm doing, but I thought I'd give a little presentation of what I've been working on lately.

Here's a shot of a baby blanket I made for a friend's daughter who's been sick. I'm a little chagrined to admit that I made this blanket a while ago and have been sitting on it instead of sending it to her. Why, you might ask? Because I wanted to send something to her older brother, too, and never got around to figuring out what. But another friend is going to see them next week and said she'd take it to them so now I'm motivated to go out and get something for him. Here it is:

The yarn is Dale Baby Ull and the pattern came from Vogue Knitting on the Go Baby Blankets. I don't often use the yarn called for in a pattern, but for this I'm glad I did. The pattern was complex enough to keep me from being bored, but the four-row pattern was easy enough that I could take it out with me and work on it anywhere.

I've found several good patterns in this book. There's a second volume out, too.

(Update): For some reason I couldn't add more than one photo to this post. After many unsuccessful attempts, I'm giving up for the night (morning). I'll work on it more over the weekend.
