I also took pictures of the alter cloth I made around the same time. I’m not very happy with it. I think blocking it only made it worse. Not sure what I’ll do with it now. I don’t think it’s big enough to qualify as a baby blanket. Maybe a crib liner for the NICU? I dunno.
My current knits include a sweater for my mom based off of one we saw at Target, and a sweater for myself–the cabled cardigan from the London Calling section of this month’s Vogue Knitting. I’ve only got an inch and a half of ribbing done so far, so we’ll see how it goes and if I have comlete and total pattern fail again.
