Despite that I did manage to get the pinwheel blanket done for my friend's forthcoming baby.It's pretty psychedelic, and as you can see from the picture, it's kinda trippin' Tux out. If it looks a little odd to all of you who have made the pinwheel before, that's because I randomly reveresed the direction of the yarn overs to make it a little more exciting. I really like the pinwheel pattern, but once it gets so big, I get a little bored, so that helped to keep my interest. Despite that, I was glad to see the back end of that one.
I also found out that there is another baby due in August. This one will be born to one of Dave's good friends. I don't believe they know any other knitters, so I'd like to get a few things done for them before the baby is born. It's too soon to know what sex it will be and we don't know if they want to know yet, so I decided to test knit a pattern designed by mom.It's a cute little top down hoodie with a basket weave design. I have decided to try adn knit only from my stash (because I have no money for wool) and was lucky that I had this lovely sage green yarn which is perfect for boy or girl. It's Mary Maxim Mellowspun. I picked up 10 balls for 97 cents about a year ago with the intention of designing something. But I don't have the time for designing right now, so it's going for a better use. I expect it will be done by the weekend, and then it's just a matter of scouring the button jars for the perfect buttons.
