Hayes’s baby blankie

The moment of truth: no, I won’t be happy with it unless I add another color. It just needs that much more length. The beginning denim blue has ribbing and then four rows of stockinette stitch that make the ribbing fold back on the afghan for tucking the baby in just so, and that charms me–but it shortens the thing.

And Purlescence, whose stock was very low anyway, is closed for a week’s vacation.

Been a long time since I’ve seen Kathryn at Cottage Yarns and now I have my excuse to go see her! (If she’s closed for vacation, quick, someone tell me, but I’m on her mailing list and haven’t heard of any such.)

So how long will it be? Enough for Hayes to use when he is 15? Yes, gorgeous!

What can I add to the above comments? Nothing….so ‘ditto’ it is.
