...WIP...Wednesday...

...two of my new neighbors have a new baby...so we made a big pot of spaghetti, with salad and bread...so that they could have a night off from cooking and just enjoy their new babe...

...we also took another little welcome gift...

...I made another Super Simple Diagonal Baby Blanket...using up all the little bits of leftover baby yarn in my stash...seriously...all of it...

...I put a couple of notes over at Ravelry too...I should have probably doubled the yarn or knit with one strand of...say...white with one of the colours...because the pattern was for a fairly chunky yarn and the baby yarn didn't give the same gauge for one thing...so at the end of the pink corners I had to decrease at both ends to make it match the center (green/white) corners...and for another...it wanted to curl at the edges...hence the crocheted border to make it lie flat...still...I'm happy with the way it turned out...and hope that the new parents and baby like it...it's the perfect size to tuck in around a carseat...and it's so soft...

~Have a lovely day!

  1. How lovely. We are waiting for news about the arrival of former neighbours, their baby is expected at any moment.

    Very, very sadly their little girl died about a year ago before her first birthday. This little boy is doubly precious for them.
