Finished Blanket!

So I did it! I listed my first blanket on my etsy site late last night. I'm very excited about it!

Here you can see a close up of the stitching.

Here is a shot with one of my sons little stuffed animals (this one is named 'Scotty') for size comparison.

And here is the blanket all folded up. I turned up the corner so you could see the difference between the all knited side and the knitted and purled side.

I have to learn how to photograph knitting now. I've gotten used to using Sam as my model for my Little Pods Clothing line, and knitting is a whole different creature! Any tips from you knitters/crocheters out there?

I'm also currently looking to feature an artist for the upcoming week, if you are interested- please let me know. I'm not looking for a particular craft, just something that strikes my fancy. All I ask is that when I put up your feature you link to my post in your blog.

Hope everyone is having a great day!

That looks super cozy! I like how you go back and forth between garter and stockinette with it too! It'll make some little one feel oh so cozy and secure!

That blanket is fantastic! I need to check out your shop. My little boy's favorite color is green.
