While I was looking through various websites for ideas for a baby blanket for my upcoming grandchild, I came across some interesting patterns. All are very creative, and I do admire a creative mind, but honestly, I don't think I'll be pulling out yarn and needles for these projects. Yes, I am still planning the special blanket for John and Miranda's baby (my grandchild), but it will be a blanket any baby would be proud to call his/her own.
The alligator above is darling, but do any of you know who would wear it? I don't, but I am sure someone must. This seems to be a pretty popular pattern on Ravelry.
If I had a lot of spare time, I just might knit this for Rev. Johnston. Nothing like a cute little sheep soap on a rope.
Anyone who has lived with a cat knows this is strickly taboo. Poor little kitty.
I know there are people who like to show off their smarts, but their brains? Seriously, this is some very clever knitting.
I love elephants, but also love babies. Babies are helpless when getting dressed by adults who just don't get it. BABIES DESERVE TO HAVE THEIR DIGNITY!!!!!
This one really puzzles me. I greatly admire anyone who can do intarsia knitting, I don't seem to be able to. But really, the Titantic next to the killer iceberg? Who wants to wear such a depressing event?
Doesn't this dog looked thrilled? Why? The hat isn't even covering the ears which is where the cold would harm first. Look at the expression on this dog's face, he's not pleased.
I've always throught knitting should be for comfortable clothing. This Union Suit doesn't look comfortable. Ugh!
Finally, if you have a LOT of yarn in your stash and don't know what to do with it, here's an idea.
To my friends and family, don't worry. I go by the rule that if I wouldn't wear it, chances are neither would you.TTFN
