Big and Bad

The Big Bad Baby Blanket is done! I finished it last Friday, including weaving in all the yarn ends but not including blocking. I figure this blanket will get washed plenty of times in its lifetime.

The Big Bad Baby Blanket certainly turned out big. I've already discussed my inability to determine the amount of yarn this blanket takes, but I don't think I mentioned the fact that I never did a gauge check while knitting this either. It's a blanket, for crying out loud. How big can it get? Apparently, it can get really big. This is about 36" by 36", sans blocking. This will be one warm baby.

I would so love to model this blanket with an actual baby, but since mine is still baking, I decided to get some swaddle practice in with this teddy bear.

And here's the blankie chillin' with the bear and some baby books. I'm glad that train knew I could do it. I was getting a little nervous myself.

Not for the squeamish.

I never knew it, but apparently, Loki is a hard-core Halloween fan. She took her costume for Franken-kitty very seriously. She went so far as to have minor surgery for it.

Too bad she was one day off and there was no one to show off to except Shiva. So now she will be spending the weekend recuperating, chewing on my knitting needles when I'm not looking, and planning next year's costume.
