I folded.....I melted.....I just had to have it. Look at this blanket and tell me you wouldn't. My next door neighbor, Katie, is pregnant and due in December. I've been wondering what to make them and when I saw this, it just clicked. It's made with worsted weight cotton but I'm going to use an acrylic so it's machine washable and dryable. They aren't finding out whether it's a boy or a girl, so I've decided on a very pale yellow with a light green ribbon woven thru the border. She's already told me that they are doing the nursery in pale green so I figured that would work nicely. I don't have the yarn and I'm not going to purchase it until my two months is up.....unless I can't hold out any longer....and that should still give me plenty of time to make this.
If you are interested in purchasing the pattern, you will find it on Ravelry and the name of it is "Silverlace".
I'm sorry that I broke my diet but I just couldn't resist this beautiful pattern. I wanted to get it early so I could study it and figure out exactly how much yarn I will need to purchase. If you are a knitter or crocheter, could you please tell me what your favorite worsted weight acrylic or acrylic blend is. I want something that doesn't pill of course because let's face it....this is alot of work and I want something worthy of the pattern.
I hope the rest of you are doing good on your "stash diet". Maybe 2 months is too long a time for the first part.....I don't know but I'm going to try and be very good for the remaining time.
Till we talk again......
Blessings as always,
