Halfway through the Weekend

I can't believe I haven't blogged all week. I wish I could say it has been because I'm oh so busy. But that is hardly the case. Rather I haven't had anything thought provoking or interesting to write about...but of course that has never stopped me from blogging before. Even now all I really have for you are pictures.

First, as promised, here is my first finished object for Spot:
Pattern: Tiramisu Blanket
Designer: Alicia Paulson
Yarn: Blue Sky Organic Cotton in Brown
Ravelry Link

I still haven't been able to get a photo of this blanket that does the color justice. It is a really rich chocolate brown but the picture above makes it look washed out. I still need to add a ribbon that will go around the edge just before the scalloping. If it's a boy I'm thinking of a turquoise blue and if it's a girl I'm thinking of a deep pink. After I add that, I'll post it again and maybe I'll finally get a good picture of the color. I really need photography lessons, I guess!

If you recall some of my posts from the fall, maybe you'll remember me lamenting about gardening and my lack of a green thumb. Well the daffodils and tulips I planted are in bloom and looking quite lovely. (But please ignore all of my hubby's junk in the background).

the blanket is beautiful and i can't wait to see it w/ the ribbon. makes me wish upon stars that i could figure out how to crochet. i'm fine w/ knitting, but there are some really great patterns out there (like the tiramisu)that i'd love to make).

the flowers look lovely, too...what a pretty post :)

I am too envious of your crocheting talent. I have tried in the past but always made up stitches. You blanket and flowers both look beautiful!

The blanket looks wonderful; I can't wait to see what color ribbon goes through it. :-)

Look at those beautiful flowers!!!

Nice! I'm only ~2/3 of the way though the blanket I'm crocheting (very similar pattern, but I'm using variegated cotton yarn, since I couldn't decide on a color).

Wow... I continue to be so impressed with your knit creations!! What a beautiful blanket!

Your flowers are very nice, too! Gorgeous, in fact!

Thanks for your continued support and encouragement on my blog, by the way! :)

My lillies that I planted last year are starting to come up. Most of the daffodils bloomed a couple of weeks ago and they are on their way out.

The blanket looks beautiful. Try putting it against white to get a darker color to show? I think that should work.

The blanket looks gorgeous! You are so talented!!! I love the idea of weaving a ribbon later once you find out the sex of your baby.
