well, i haven't posted anything in a while, mostly due to fo's that i've been less than happy with, but here is one that i'm damn pleased about!  i made this as a gift for a new mom to be, obviously, and it was a pretty quick knit with 10 1/2 needles and bernat acrylic yarn.  i backed it with purple flannel sewn on by machine and then hand tied every four inches.  i was pleasantly surprised with how very soft the yarn was after washing!  anyway, without further ado, i present the girly skull baby blanket:

the bird's eye shot on our kitchen table.


artfully placed on the couch so you can see the lining.

done in intarsia , of course

omg! that is so stinkin' cute! I'm not that into the skully stuff, but i would totally use that for babies (if i had any, which i don't, yet....) that is an amaizing job. i can never seem to get intarsia so i am in awe of people like you who can do such cool stuff with it!

i'm sure the mommy to be will be thrilled to recieve such a wonderful gift. i can only imagine how much love went into it!

That is unbelievably sweet. I'd better not show this to my sis-in-law... Mum *hates* doing this sort of knitting!  Cheesy
