Here are two pictures of the blanket I just finished knitting for my cousin’s baby-to-be.

Reason Number 347 Never to Have Children: slow but inevitable descent towards lunacy brought on by monotony of basket-weave pattern.

    Ooh, I hear ya. I finished a baby blanket about three weeks ago and I have NEVER been so glad to be done with something. And I seem to recall you were working on that at least two months ago!

    What kind of yarn is that? It’s purty!

    I just wanted to tell you that I think the blanket is really very pretty. I am a failed knitter, because I couldn’t take the monotony of knitting. I’m always envious of people who can turn yarn into art. Or comfy blankets.

    How on earth do you find the time ?

    I hope you haven’t given up on the quilting!

    I like it. It’s like hundreds of little rainbow flags. It’s a good way to start a baby off in the world.

    It’s lovely! If Marc and I ever manage to get pregnant (we keep trying!), would you make one for us? 😉

    what sized needles did you use? Is it all in one piece?

    I spent the weekend working on a wedding-gift needlepoint . . . of course, it’s now 10.5 years late, and they have three kids, but I’m still working away. It’s about 75% done. bigger scrim; must get bigger scrim . . .

    It’s gorgeous. Hypnotic, almost.

    I feel strangely compelled to do your bidding…

    Nifty gay pride baby blanket! You should market these to those newly adoptive gay parents. They can wrap their chinese/ guatemalan/ etc. bundle of joy in yards of warm, woolen, gay love…

    OWWW, MY EYES! MY EYES! I’m sure that’s a very nice blankie you made, but my gawd man! The colors! :~)

    Aren’t you worried you’ll make the baby dizzy?

    I see that I’m in the minority because I LOVE IT. It’s beautiful, Faustus. I would cry if someone gave me something they’d made by hand that looked like that (happy tears, of course :-)).
