HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME

Hi there everybody. Today is my birthday. As my brother KINDLY pointed out to me this morning I am now 6 times older than my daughter.

I have also been reminded that I forgot to tell the world that my son turned 16 on 13 March. If I did remember then it's obviously senility setting in.

On the plus side I finished this :



Which looks like this close up :

This is a patternless baby blanket inspired by the Yarn Harlot's blankies for the Tinks. Unlike our beloved Stephanie, I do not labour under the belief that a baby will wait for it's knitting so this is finished well in advance of the due date. Not as well in advance as I first thought as I had to rip out the entire border as I didn't pick up enough stitches, but well in advance enough.

It was a nice, brainless, knit. I did the garter stitch middle until it was getting on my nerves and knitted the border until I was close to running out of yarn and SERIOUSLY starting to hate the whole thing. I'm just waiting to hear if either of the parents are allergis to cats. If they are I need to give this a GOOD wash before it goes to it's new home.

I'm going to ask for a pic of the baby in the blanket. If I do get one I'll post it here for your viewing pleasure.

Have a good day people. I'm off to eat black forest dessert. Everything has zero calories when it's your birthday - right?
