Happy Mama's Day to all you Mama's out there!

Happy Mama's Day to all you Mama's out there....

I'm still working on the blanket from the previous post - but you know there has got to be something said for actually reading the pattern and it's instructions all the way through before actually starting the pattern. I'm a complete just dive in and start knitting the pattern. Well i don't thik i'll be doing that anymore. This cute little baby blanket is gonna become a wall hanging. Why? Ms. I can knit anything without actually reading the pattern used the wrong sized needle!!!!!!! It said to cast on with the sixes and knit with the eights! Can y'all see my blond roots showing? I feel like a complete idiot!!!!! Lucky for me I have enough yarn to actually make another - ok I have enought yarn to make about six more of these. Yeah - I know - that's a whole lotta cotton!!!! I love the Lion Brand Cotton Ease and well you know...when you shop on eBay you can never buy just one skein of yarn and well...I have quite a bit of Cotton Ease. Such is the life of a knitter.

I got some really pretty pre-planted flower pots. Yes that's what I wanted instead of the roses, birds of paradise or other various flowers! I wanted some plants that would last longer than the flowers in the vase. I forgot to take photos of them before the sun set today so I will add the photos tomorrow.

Hope you all had a wonderful day!

Ouch. Well it sounds like you have a lake of yarn over there for many more blankets, so can't wait to see the full size. Yeah, how about I read the pattern first and still have issues - okay!! Can't wait to see the pictures of the plants, I love pics of nature, so purty.
