I finished knitting my Pinwheel Baby blanket, and was more than a bit discontented with how it was rolling at the edges. I shot an email to Cristi, whose own Pinwheel Blanket had inspired me to make this one, on how I could remedy the rolling. She had a simple solution - crochet a shell border around the circumference of the blanket. Boy, was I glad I had used a crocheted cast-off - it made it that much easier to continue around with the shell border. I am actually on the second round of shells. When I had gone once around I decided to flip the blanket over and continue in the opposite direction, hoping to further counter-act any rolling. I should be able to finish this while watching American Idol tonight!
I peeked in on Willow before I went to bed to tuck her in and found her like this:
This was an odd night - usually her tiger, Sergei, is directly over her face. I don't know why. And Teri - look - she is wearing the jammies you gace her for Christmas!
Lucky and I were cozying up and taking pictures last night - I know I look dead tired - it was past eleven o'clock and I should have been long in bed, but he was being so lovey.
