I finished Max's blanket on Monday, Kelly helped me to grab these photos of it, and Iggy sorted them for me. There are two photos because where we could get decent light to take the photos there wasn't much room for Kelly to move away from where I was, so to show the two different coloured thick stripes I knitted through it he took a photo of each end. Normally we'd wait until the next day to use the light of day so we could have more options of places to take the photo, but the following morning (Tuesday) Mam was hoping to pick the blanket up to give it to Jane, for Jane to give it to Pia. If I hadn't finished it she would have come for it another day, but since I had, then she wanted to pick it up. Anyway, here are the two photos of the blanket I knitted for Max:
Sometimes photos don't show colours well, so I'll tell you that it's meant to be lemon coloured, with a mint green stripe and a blue stripe through it. There's also a little gold trim at each end, but I'm not sure if you can see that in the photos or not. I couldn't decide whether to do the stripes mint green or blue, hence doing one of each, and I thought the little bit of gold trim at each end would be a nice little touch. I mean, how often do you get to knit with gold wool?
Anyway, Pia hasn't actually got it yet (she gets it either later today, or some time tomorrow). But, I'll let you know what she thinks of it when she gets to see it. I hope she likes it as much as she liked Emma-Jane's blanket!
I'm now back to working on the blanket I'm knitting for myself.
