I was at work, wearing a nice pair of linen dress pants, and felt something in one of the pockets – I tell you, little boys have nothing on us. Frankly, I’m surprised there weren’t some stitch markers in there as well.
That is Pediboo, my new favorite yarn. I am crocheting a many colored baby blanket in squares. They are NOT granny squares, Gale. I can’t show it because the intended recipient checks this blog. Well, the intended recipient is in the uterus of the blog checker, to be precise. I forgot how fast crocheting is compared to knitting. Sewing all those squares together, however, took some of the wind out of my sails. Well, what are godmothers for, after all, if not crafting their fingers to the bone for lovely baby presents.
For instance, this is the first knitted gift I made for blog checker when she was one.
You can tell because she loved holding up her finger to show she was one. It is not a new iphone app jazzing up a picture to look all vintage and cool. It is vintage and cool. Well, at least it is vintage. As I recall, it was an EZ circular yoke, with charts I found in a 1940’s pattern booklet. It may have also been my first attempt at steeking. If you click to embiggen, you can see it is not exactly perfect. I think my sister still has it, so maybe this little one can wear it as well.
The pocket contents picture was taken with my phone. This next picture was taken with my new camera. I finally broke down and got a digital SLR, as the prices for entry level versions have dropped quite a bit since I last checked. I only wish I had gotten it earlier in the summer for more HawkCam.
(In case you are wondering, it is a squirrel snack under her feet.) The kids have been scarce in the past few days. Mr. Guy is worried, since we haven’t seen Stoopid at all for two days. “I bet he got his ass in a jam.” Big sigh. “I knew we should have gotten them cell phones.”
