I like the flower best, it would look awesome with the right button.

But the polka dots are fun too. I vote you make another bag so you never have to decide!

I love the mitts, I've been meaning to make them...

I have a question for those of you using the suggested yarn (but maybe in different colourways). Do you like it? Do you think it's worth the price? I know it's a pretty good price for merino, but I'm just curious how much you like it.

I would inc one to make it odd so that your seed st starts coming out correctly, but if you don't mind too much I don't think there should be an issue.

I used long tail cast on, which is what I always use unless I have a good reason not to.

That's a really smart idea!

I was wondering how you got the smocking to look so nice- my next row always looks like it has a loose stitch on one side. Did you follow the smocking directions exactly or make some change?

It looks great! I love the color.

I frogged this!

<gasp>

Never fear though, I frogged it because the yarn I was using simply wasn't soft enough for my taste. I am starting again with Lion Brand's baby yarn in a pretty blue (I didn't want to knit a blue one, so stereotypical, but it was the prettiest color).
I am about an inch into the border. Sigh.

I also saw this in the store this weekend and I have to agree with the previous posters. Not as coarse as red heart, not as soft as simply soft. I didn't notice any splitting but I walked by, squeezed it, and moved onto something else since I was looking for yarn for a baby blanket.

I have about a month, and you're right, it's dumb to be worried. It's not like they're going to say:

"We don't want this hand-knitted blanket that probably took you hours and hours because our baby is already born."

I'm doing it in TLC by red heart (it's nice and soft, and this is kind of a stashbuster project) and it's knitting up decently, it's just that moss stitch slows me down a lot.  Now that I've (finally!) gotten to the actual pattern, it's already sped up quite a bit.
