Pattern: My own
Size: 31" x26"
Yarn: Classic Elite Spotlight, 100% cotton, about 5 and 2/3 balls at 92 yards a ball; say 600 yards. The middle photo is the most accurate for color, at least on my monitor. Note this yarn was from the stash.
Needles: size 7 bamboo circs


OK, that makes two baby presents down, and three to go before the end of the year. I think I'm getting tired of cute. Luckily, this cotton Spotlight did not bother my hands to knit, but I do think it wore down the ridges of my fingerprints. I feel as though I can't quite grasp yarn as well or as quickly as I did before this project.

In other news, Sophie came through her knee surgery just fine this week, Dawn nominated me for a Rockin' Girl Blogger award [me? come on now!], and Dave and Shelley tied the knot this past Saturday in their backyard, with 240 people watching and cheering them on. It's been a good week!

It's perfect! The baby block design, the color, even the fact that you knit it from stash yarn.
