I started work on the baby blanket, using the ecru color-flecked cotton yarn, and then realized I wasn't going to have enough of it to be able to finish. *sigh*

So I switched to the purple/teal/deep pink cotton yarn. It's not baby-colored, you know...the pastel colors, but it's vivid, and children love vivid colors. And I have two cones of it, so there's plenty for the blanket as well as a ruffled edge.

The swatches have been laundered, so I'll get the gauge from the knitted one and start mapping out the toddler top pattern. I seem to do my best work with patterns that I make up myself. I have the next 4 days off work, so I should be able to get some real knitting and crocheting done.

It's for mzwyndi's daughter. The toddler top is for moon_ferret's son.
