|This was on Feb 17th...so big! (Stolen from her facebook page)|
My cousin Alyssa had a baby! As in yesterday :o) I, of course, procrastinated sending her baby blanket for little Vinny because I had to take a finished picture still. But here it is:
Another problem: the blue bled into the white during blocking. I don't know if the color bled from the knit work or from the ends that were still dangling in the back.
I thought about bleaching just those sections but that seemed a bit dangerous. I thought about getting a Clorox bleach pen, but couldn't easily find one. So I left it. Kyle said it looked like a shadow (my response: There is no shadow in the Mets logo!) and other said they didn't see it unless I pointed it out. We'll see if my cousin notices on her own.
I have to make another (um, for myself this time) but with a better yarn choice. The hardest thing is finding the right colors though for a sports team. If anyone has suggestions I'm definitely listening :o)
Pattern: My own
Project Page: Mets Blanket
Needle: US size 7
Yarn: Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece
I can't leave you without some scrumptious baby pictures of course:

And after seeing that belly, one must be wondering how big he was. Only 6 lbs 11 oz! But he is loooong. He's going to be a tall tall boy :o)
