6th Time's a Charm

6 times I started the Pinwheel Baby Blanket before I finally figured out I could have had it right from the start, but I was just overthinking. The instructions do tell you to *K1 YO* around to the marker, but do you think I was YOing at the marker? No. I was K1 and then never could figure out how I was coming up short. It just didn't make sense to me that you'd YO before a marker like that. Duh. but I've got it figured out, and once I get moving on it, I'll switch out those boring plastic rings for some of my fab beaded stitch markers. I managed to finish painting the ceiling of the Jaywalker bathroom tonight. Yup. Jaywalker. You'll see. This is the first time I've really been able to sit down at my computer in my office since I had internet installed on Tuesday. I turned on my camera to download that pic, and saw Ripple on the futon. He did this right when I held up the camera to take a pic. Aww, such a show off.

The pinwheel blanket is a really nice pattern. Is there a baby you are knitting for, or is it for yourself?

Looks awesome - great color on the blanket. What yarn are you using?

The blanket is for my friend's baby. It is needed to replace the Odessa she won't stop cuddling. The parents have requested something in the same yarn without beads so she can sleep with it. Awww. It's the Red Heart Soft Baby yarn I made the Odessa with. I have a feeling that yarn will make an appearance in many projects. I have 3 skeins of it, and they're never ending!

I know the beginning is a huge pain, but I think yours will be beautiful!
