I tip my cap to Jolene, who suggested a fabulous new feature for the blog when commenting on the baby news- Wee Wednesdays! So, sometimes on a Wednesday (not every Wednesday, but I’ll confine baby knits and baby talk to Wednesdays) I’ll post about something baby/knitting related. Like this baby blanket:
The night I was knitting the baby blanket, and then was struck by the
thought that I only needed 5 colours for the blanket, not six, and what
was I going to do with the extra colour?! I stared at it for twenty
minutes trying to figure out how to modify the pattern to incorporate
that 6th colour when it slowly dawned on me… I did indeed only have 5
colours. And then I realized all the work clothes that fit me right now
are grey, which is boring. And then I started to cry. Because I
apparently can’t count to 5 and all my clothes are grey.
I may have missed out on morning sickness, but hormone craziness has hit me like a tonne of bricks.
But I let some days pass and looked at it again. And I started to think that maybe it was looking a bit off, so I tried it without the green… which:
Makes me think of the 70’s. Or clowns from the 70’s. There are laws about red and orange being used together that requires more spacing than what I’ve done here in this second take. I don’t know what I was thinking, taking the green out of the mix. Hormones, give me back my knitting mojo!
UPDATE: The pattern I’m using is a free baby blanket pattern which you can find here.
