Hello fellow crafters! This week I've begun steering away from Christmas presents, well, almost. I cast on a baby blanket for my friend who is having baby #2 in the spring/early summer. The picture really stinks, you can hardly see the pattern. It is the baby chalice blanket, and I'm loving the pattern. How do you feel about the red? I wasn't sure, but so far I'm liking it. I am not a person that thinks babies need pastels colours all the time. A little visual stimulation is a good thing!
And as is often the case, my nemesis has become my love. I'm almost done with the Copy Cat Slouch, and once I got over my initial hurdles--I love it! I am seriously thinking about getting another ball of this yarn to make a hat of my own.
I really like the yarn, which is Katia Azteca. It is 50% wool, 50% acrylic, and the colours are so pretty. This will be a very late Christmas present, but that's ok, I think it will be worth it!
