slowly transformed into tangible objects

First time for everything!

I’ve officially started the first baby blanket I will KEEP!

I’m pregnant! I’m almost 5 weeks along.

I’ll post pictures later of my progress. Because its so early, and also because my local hospital doesn’t tell you the babies sex, it’s in a gender neutral colour.

It’s also my favourite colour! GREEN!

Ugh, I have the hiccups now and I’ve been up too late.

So I’m going to bed and get back to working on this blanket later.

Baby Blanket!

My friend had a little girl a couple months ago and I decided I’d make her a blanket!

This one is much different then the other blankets I’ve made because knitted. The only crochet parts are where the knitted strips are sewn together and a decorative edging to finish it off.

This is the blanket with a DVD on it for size reference. Just one of the many things I watched throughout the making of this gift.

This is the zigzag knit pattern I learned off of a co-worker when I was working with Elections Canada this past month during the election. I’m so happy I asked her how to make it. I made two white and strips pink, red, brown one.

On the outside edges I modified the pattern to make smaller pink, red, brown strips to add a bit more width.


I finished all around the outside with a chain stitch kind of looped/scalloped looking. 5 chains and then 2 stitches between to anchor.

So I got a cool pattern from a co-worker today for an afghan.

You made long strips of these sections and then stitch them together!

I’m pretty stoked with how easy it is and how cool it looks.

We got a ton of these canvas bundles from my mother-in-law a while back and I haven’t really thought of them much. There are 3 canvases to a bundle and we have about 7-8 bundles. They’re in a container in my craft room waiting to be used.

Last night I had a vision! A dream! An Inspiration!

In other words, I got an idea.

So I will be using multiple canvesi for a spread out image.
I’ll be using a larger canvas to make the profile of lips puckered to blow.
Another medium canvas will have a dandelion puff being blown away
Various other smaller canveli will be scattered with individual and group of seed puffs floating away.
I have a few large spaces of wall in the house that could really use some sprucing up.
Alas, I can’t find any of my paint! So either I find where I may have squirreled it away, or go buy new paints. You can’t go wrong with extra paint, so I might just have to get some.
For now I’ll have to be satisfied with sketching the rough draft on the canvelies.
