My yarn from StickChick came the other day. It's amazingly soft, and much shinier than the pics suggest!!! I can't wait to dye it! We're going to do 3 different blues, it's his favorite color :-) I tried to take an artsy blog pic for you guys-

That's right, i was just invited to a friend's sister's baby shower. Of course, because I'm crazy, the first thing i say is. "I want to knit her a baby blanket!". Stupid big mouth!!! UgH! I've only been knitting for about a year or so, and I haven't made one yet. First instinct is to take the easy way out, so i pulled out the ol' SnB book, dusted it off and remembered the Big Bad Baby Blanket. I found this hand painted yarn, a cast off from a friend, in my obscenely large stash hamper and thought it would be perfect. In fact, i shouldn't be working on this blog, after all I only have 2 weeks....
