WIP: Rock-a-bye Baby afghan... Pictures FO
Yesterday I started my first baby afghan... The pattern is from Evelyn A. Clark from this bookQuick Knit Baby Afghans...

Since I didnt have markers to use(I got the wrong ones the other day at the store) I used my earrings...

That's very pretty! Looks like you need circular needles for it though as it barely fits on the straights!

REALLY pretty!

And, yes, we knitters are an inventive improvisational (desperate) bunch!

I have knit that blanket. It is so cute. I am debating which one I want to do out of the book for the next one. I am thinking Hush A Bye or Whisper Soft. It is a great pattern book.

I love how it is turning out... I was arguing with myself because I like Hush-a-bye and this one before I started, but being that I didnt have two colors to combine, I thought this one would look better. But that is the next one Im making...

Maybe we can Knit along Robin...

It is my first time wrapping stitches and making short rows, Im really excited!!!... Ill be full of questions once I get there though... :rollseyes:
