I am so proud of this finished scarf. I completed it while at the park this afternoon. My new phone does not let me upload photos to WordPress that is why there is a link to Instagram!!!!  Next up fingerless mittens in the same yarn!

While at Hobby Lobby this weekend I picked up 2 yards of this fleece. My Love had requested a blanket. Easy. Sure. I got this.
This is now day 2 of the blanket project.
Let’s recap
Day 1: upper thread brakes twice, lower thread brakes once, stitching gets wonky, wonky stitches removed, stitches go wonky (again), stitches removed (again).
Day 2: rethreading machine, start with new needle, realize the problem is the selected stitch, change stitches (I will fix it so no one will tell), realize I can not hide the stitches and be happy with how it looks, cut off all sewing that took place thus far. So now I have slightly under 2 yards of fabric and will start again tomorrow.
Despite all this I am enjoying myself.

This is the fabric that My Love handed me and said make a baby blanket. What a perfect pattern for a baby boy…I discovered that 99.999% of my stash is girl fabric.

So how does one layout a baby blanket for photographing?

Or this is an option too.

Just can’t stop sharing the pictures…could be because this is the 1st blanket I have ever made. Maybe it’s because I was able to complete this start to finish in just over 2 hours!!!

So I ended up doing two different stitches…well because I need to cover a goof I made in the beginning. I think it makes it look unique.

So now I can breath that this is done. Until after work when I need to go find a locket to go with this blanket…so stress!!
