Okay, either I've gotten really adept at this particular pattern ... or I managed, somehow, to fall into a rift in time itself! I actually knit this adorable blanket in just 9 days. It may have been that whole giving up sleeping thing. Or perhaps I've memorized the pattern far more than I thought I had. Either way, I think it's gorgeous.
I had a brief moment of pure "oh crap what is wrong with me!!!!" on Saturday thanks to the lovely Dragon, brat that he is. He said that the customer wouldn't have asked for green and purple. I ignored him, climbed back into the middle of my knitting stuff on the bed, and began the border. Three stitches in I remind myself that I checked the order three times before placing it. At 7 stitches I tell myself that I verified the colors again when I got the yarn in. At 15 stitches I give up, shoot him a dirty look, and check my email to verify what the customer ordered. I was right, he was just bugging me ... but then he started giggling. He knew what he'd done alright. Dragon is tricksy like that.
Mr. Rabbit is the only thing I have around here that's close to baby sized. Good thing he's not picky about modeling for me when needed. Isn't he just adorable when he peeks out like that?
Yeah, I know, I'm in a world of my own. That's okay, they know me there and serve me chocolate and supply me with yarn.
I was a little nervous about using cotton yarn since I the yarn I'd used before hadn't been all that great to use. Would it be too harsh on my hands? Would it do as I needed? I should have never worried. This was some 'really' soft yarn. I kept getting side tracked and cuddling it. I'll certainly have to get my hands on more of this stuff and work with it again.
