S finally managed to love his baby blankie (my very first knitting project!) to death. After his favorite corner ripped off, he asked for a new one. He picked out Lamb's Pride in blues and reds and I found an afghan pattern from Sarah Dallas Knitting that was just what he wanted. I made it much smaller than the pattern or S's original blankie (this one's only 36" long), and since it's knit in two strips of stockinette stitch, it went really fast! It didn't even take the 90 days that S said it would take to "yarn a blankie". And best of all, S LOVES it - he was so happy about the new blankie, he gave up the old one without a second thought. Awwwwww.
