Yarn Pron for HER pleasure
My very artistic shot of some cotton yarn. Just to make things interesting for my viewers. This shot in no way happened because I can't take a still shot to save my life. Or because even the "steady cam" action on a digital camera can't control for my hand movements. Or because I didn't get my daily dose of the CH3CH2OH. (That's the zip in your drinkydrink for all you non-science winos out there.)
The-Santa-who-is-not-my-husband got me some cotton yarn to make another baby blanket. Because, the six I have made, plus the one I have purchased are not enough to sate my craving for baby blankets. My next morsel for gobbling up required a little visit to elann.com for 5 balls of Antique plum, 3 balls of antique blue, 3 balls of oasis and 2 balls of white for the Dots and Stripes Blanket by Zoe Mellor. (I am linking fellow knit blogger Christina, whom I have not met or even read her blog, but she scanned in the previous picture I found through googling.) The pattern can be found on page 48 in Adorable Knits for Tots: 25 Stylish Designs for Babies and Toddlers as pictured below.
I'd link this bad baby up on ravelry, but the pattern eludes me. Even when I open up all 25 patterns for this book for viewing. 25 patterns are there, except this one. I know it's in the book -I'm holding it in my freaking hands right now! But it's not on ravelry anywhere. This is the first time ravelry has ever let me down. I'm baffled.
