Heart Baby Blanket

I'm saving up for my very first iPod. It was a hard decision for me because I could also use a few other items like another pair of jeans, shoes, stuff for the house, etc. Somehow I've justified putting those off for several more months so that I can have a new toy first. Part of it was looking back and seeing how much of my personal money (Christmas gifts, etc) has been spent on other people -mostly my kids. So I convinced myself that I deserve a new toy.

I actually told hubby that I was going to sell some of my yarn stash to raise a little money. Then I discovered a good amount of Yarn Bee Baby Bee yarn left over from a previous baby blanket. Enough to make a blanket similar to the one I made before. I figured a blanket could actually sell better than just skeins of yarn -some of which were partially used. Either way, it was fun to make.

I had fun with the double ruffle edging. I love how it looks.

It's finished. I'm happy with how it turned out. It's now listed for sale on Etsy.com.

  • Yes, get an iPod. Get something. Me too. I don't have one but I am going to. You have to so you don''t get left completely behind. You know what happened to the dinosaurs!

    I like the ruffly edges. My edges turn out like that...but not on purpose!
