Well, the due date for Sophie's little sister to be born has been and gone. So, anytime soon we should have some exciting news! In the meantime, yet MORE blankiness is going to have suffice. I am beginning to feel that the compulsion to make blankets may be on the wane. I'm not sure if that is a good or a bad thing, as I still have two blankets that remain very much in a state of unfinishedness. One of these aforesaid blankets is for the aforesaid baby........ when she comes! In a word, the blanket mojo needs to at least keep working for the next couple of weeks or so. The other hibernating bit of blankiness is my longterm sock yarn blankie project. Perhaps I'll wake him up for a quick photo shoot; just one picture mind! We don't want to get our hand bitten off for waking him from his slumber, now do we. If I am in luck, I'll give you a peek at the end of this post. peek at the end of the blog post. Fingers crossed, he will oblige.
Well, back to the pretty little cuteness that is this little blankie soul. It's made from the remains of the yarn for the 'Sweet Baby Blanket ' that I finished a couple of weeks ago.
It looks rather larger than it actually is and I'm not at all happy with the border, which I made up in haste (a little too much haste methinks), so as to get done. However, as the blankie is intended for little Sophie's 'baby' ( her special doll), I don't think it will matter too much. I just don't have the time to undo and redo.
I needed to miss a stitch between the trebles on the blue or red round, I guess and then my final round would have fewer clusters and, in turn, would have been a little flatter.
I think Sophie will like the ruffled edge just the way it though and that's all that really matters.
Well, there we go. What do you think of my sweet little doll's blankie with the 'ruffley' edges?
Oh, just before I go, here's a rare shot of that little known or seen blankie beast, the 'Sock Yarn Blankie'. Make the most of it, because you won't see him again for a while!
