Mod Babies Only Need Apply

Once again, inspired by a customer I cast on this blanket on a whim, and was blocking within the week. I couldn't stop. It was addictive. I canceled social plans so I could carry on with this blanket. You people have got to stop with this 'inspiration' stuff. I need to learn to live more vicariously through other people's projects.

Too bad I had so much darned fun!

The yarn? King Cole Splash (3 balls)
The pattern? Argosy Baby Blanket (click HERE for the free pattern)
The needles? 4.5 mm
The mods? The original pattern is written for a worsted weight, and I used a DK weight. SO- I made the blanket two extra increases to get the size I was going for (start knitting and you'll know what I mean when I say that).

Look at the blanket getting all cheeky with the flowers...

The best part? Someone pointed out that this colourway is 'Hannah Montana Purple'.

ALSO- I would like to point out that the idea given to me to make a nail polish cozy in the previous post is nothing short of brilliant.
I'm on it.

Thank you. After you make the nailpolish cozy, post it, AND have it at the store so I can check it out in person.

You know how I like blankets and this is great! It really blocked well. Ah dear, another project to start :)
