very festive!!! (but you are putting some of us to shame!) how do the decorations at work look?off the subject...I was 24 rows into my crocheted blanket and I ripped it all out today because it was so ugly! I decided to rip it out before it got any uglier, so I started all over today. I'm telling myself that this is the last time that I do this, but I can only hope that I am that disciplined.
LOL! Tell me about ripping stitches. That darned pink blanket I started (on our drive to Michigan) I am barely 5 rows into it, I just keep screwing things up with it. It has a 7 dc shell in the pattern and I keep trying to make it only 6. You get back on the next row and find the mistake and have to rip it all out back to the mistake and fix it! Then I suddenly came to the realization while I was working on it waiting for J's MRI last week, that this blaket, if I do it according to the pattern, will be triangular. How odd. I'm not sure I want to make a triangular baby blanket. I'm sure that is how the pattern intends it to be, but you couldn't tell from the picture. So at this point, I'm not sure if I am going to finish it or rip it out and use the yarn for something else, or alter the pattern so that it will be square instead. So believe me, I've been there, done that. You'll get it!The decorations at work look really nice. The tree is the perfect height for the space and it doesn't look like a Vikings tree with the purple and gold ornaments. LOL We were afraid of that so we added some white and silver, too. We don't have a topper on it, though because the ones we bought were both too heavy and kept falling down. Oh well, it looks fine without it. It is actually pretty easy to change the backgrounds on the templates. I can change yours for you if you want me to. I can make a background just for you if you like! Just let me know!
I like your background - I LOVE CHRISTMAS!!! Not to butt in to your conversation here....but a triangular baby blanket would be kind of nice, if it was for a newborn. The triangle shape makes it really easy to swaddle them up tight, which was a lifesaver when Sydney was a baby. As soon as we had her wrapped up tight she was out like a light. Plus a crocheted blanket would have a little stretch to it so you could wrap them really good! Sounds like torture, but its not - they love it!
Thanks, Roxanne. Please don't feel like you are butting in! I'm not sure how good this blanket would be for swaddling as it is a really lacy style, but, I'll give it some thought. Most of the stuff I wind up selling gets used for dolls instead of real babies, anyway. LOL
