All About Girls...

Along with the frock I'm making for Miss A. I started this Big Bad Baby Blanket for our friends daughter-in-law who is expecting their (our friends) first granddaughter...

I've always liked pinks and greens together so when the word came down the J was having a baby girl I went ahead and ordered the yarn...

I'm not one for traditional baby pastels. They make me uncomfortable. I like bold, and I like texture. I think babies like texture to, I know I did. I can remember falling asleep at night with my sateen edged blanket, rubbing the silky feel...
So instead of the traditional blah pastels I went with grass green and raspberry pink... I think it's wonderful, so does Grandma and Mom to be...
Plus the BBBB is all about texture and you get it with just changing the stitch from a knit to a purl. Plus the LB Wool-Ease thick and quick is super soft and squishy... Not to mention machine washable!
I'm almost halfway. Maybe I need to make a BBBB for myself...

Happy Monday!

ps my favorite ads last night during the Super Bowl were;
1. Doritos with the goat... The goat screamed just like a friend of ours and delighted us to no end.
2. The Budweiser Clydesdale... Brought me to tears...
3. and surprisingly the Pistachio commercial... I'll never sing Gangnam style the same way again, nor will I eat pistachio's without singing 'heeeeeyyyy!!! Crack your nuts now'

Winner!
