Warning – I’m gonna be all lame here and gush about an iphone app. You take a picture then you shake it and wait for it to develop like a polaroid!! It’s so much fun! (And it’s completely hypocritical of me to love it so much as I really hate the Hipstamatic app that takes faux lomo shots – just use a Holga or a Diana people!)
And here is my old friend Montalbano with his new friend, Gabi’s crochet baby blankie. I got straight onto it and sewed up the left over hexagons and started working on the trim. And since Bano likes it and I’m also told the lovely Sally’s Mister 3 even likes it, so I’m feeling pretty confident that my lil one will like it too. (And if not, too bad.)
Only problem is I got THIS CLOSE to finishing the trim in the pale green when I ran out of yarn. CURSES!!
Ironically every thing I’ve ever tried to crochet in that lovely pale green bamboo/cotton yarn has been promptly ripped up, I just can’t seem to get it to work for me. So I wasn’t surprised it wasn’t going to oblige me and finish the trim without an argument. What should I do? Rip it off? Fill the gap with left over jade? Crochet the row again using a smaller stitch that might conserve more yarn? Ditch the entire project?!
