My Current Obsession
I wasn't certain of today's photo. I actually took a few shots and narrowed it down to two and then let my husband decided which photo should be my photo today. He chose this one. So this one it is.
This is a photo of my in progress baby blanket. I'm about at the 20% point with the blanket and it's really starting to come together. The blanket has become a slight obsession of mine. I just love sitting down and working on it. I've actually started a little ritual. While I'm knitting I talk out loud to my stomach. She seems to know I'm talking to her and answers me by kicking or squirming around.
This pattern is from the Stitch 'n Bitch: The Knitter's Handbook. It's called Big Bad Baby Blanket by designer Lisa Shobhana Mason. I have another photo of this blanket up on my Raverly project page as well.
Anyway, back to this photo. In this shot you can see the detail of the seed stitch boarder very nicely. And the depth and dimension of the material as it's knitting up.
