Baby Afghan

I crocheted this baby afghan in March out of cream sportweight acrylic/nylon yarn. (I think it was "Baby Soft.") All it is is a square of double crochet with "aquaduct" edging.
I think it has a pleasing simplicity about it. unfortunately, I washed it with my Artyarns Supermerino cream/black/lime socks... which turned everything in my laundry light gray. Lesson learned. I mailed the baby afghan out to Sibling #5 anyway. I don't know if she's using it.

Cropped Cardi

This cardigan is obviously "#21: Short Cardigan" from Vogue Knitting Spring/Summer 2006. Isn't it?

Okay, I admit I made a few changes. I substituted black KnitPicks Merino Style for cotton yarn, and I used only one color throughout instead of striping. And then I totaly redesigned the sleeves.

My buttons are square!

The blanky is to die for. Did you crochet that collar that you're wearing with the cropped sweater? You made that sweater look a million times better than the original. It's lovely.

Snow!!! And that cardigan picture looks awfully familiar :)

Love both the blanket and the sweater! My knitting mojo is MIA again, but I think it might just be hiding under a pre-summer cold. Glad you're posting again!
