Someone should throw some sort of party…..

I finished the marathon of garter stitch!  My hands may be crippled for life, but I have this beauty to show for it. 🙂

In case you haven’t heard me yammering on and on about this project, it is called the “Super Easy Baby Blanket” by Purl Bee.  The yarns are scrumptious and are Madeline Tosh Vintage yarns.

This has been my most expensive project to date.  I kinda knew that getting in though.  When you have to buy 7 skeins it will get spendy.  The result is worth it…..and life is too short to knit with crappy yarn.  If I am going to spend all that time on something, I want it to be really nice quality.

You can see my project page here.

Happy Sunday!

    I love your knit baby blanket: it looks so cozy!! I found you yesterday through some blog surfing (in other words, I can’t remember just exactly how I got here!!) 🙂 and I just wanted to tell you that I’ve thoroughly enjoyed looking through your blog: You have the cutest kids, I love what you sew (you are SO creative!!), and I love your vintage sewing machine. I learned to sew on one like it. My mom got it as a gift when she got married in 1951, and though I love to sew, with 5 girls, it went to another sister’s home. Have a great week!! I’ll be back to visit you !! Helen in Healdsburg

    I learned to knit once, but I could never quite manage to perfect the ‘cast-on’. So I gave up. Very beautiful. Love the colors!
