Cuz you're all staying up late...

to find out if I finished the blanket. Yes, I made it to the shower with the blanket. Sort of. There was only a little bit left to finish. But the real news is that I only opened mouth inserted foot a few times and at least one major time while I was there. Loverly. I think I should start texting my comments to myself before I actually say things out loud. Nah, probably wouldn't help and would be too time consuming.

Yes, tacky and rude as it was I finished the blanket at the shower. There were plenty of people there willing to hold Little Miss and enough others to block my view of what Holly was opening and what I was actually doing, so whatever. It's done. And it's not a hat, or a shawl, or a poncho. It's a round baby blanket. But if she wants to cut a hole in the center and make it a poncho it's her, I mean Grady's blanket so go ahead.

The pics were taken in the dark on the front porch so they aren't fancy, but you get the idea.

Pinwheel Baby Blanket- Ravelry
Used Lion Organic Cotton
10.5 dpns and then circs worked in the round. Oooh, and I learned the picot bind off for this. I know you don't care, but someday I'm going to want to remember.

He is so very, very cute. I didn't get a shot of Momma and baby, but I got Auntie and baby.

And just baby. Dang, he is a cute little bug.

Ang and I used the Very Hungry Caterpillar book by Eric Carle as a theme for the diaper cake. They're actually a lot of fun to make.

And the brownies...well... they weren't exactly brownies. They were chocolate covered peanut butter bars and the first time around I burned the chocolate while changing a diaper. So, second time around didn't leave me enough time to try them out before packing them up to take to the shower. Umm, not so much. They are so sweet that a snack like that should be followed by something high in protein (like I preach to all my diabetic patients) and by more protein I don't mean another another peanut butter bar. But I don't think anyone cared. Grady-bug was enough eye candy for all of us. (Yeah, I had to work that in. Do people actually say eye candy?)

There you have it. Cuz I know that's what you all stayed up late to find out.

Does it make me a bad mormon if I didn't know what a diaper cake was?

Marti said...
