I don't like the pressure of having to make gifts during this time of the year--and have never done so.
But, this year, there was a collision of circumstances.
I needed something easy-peasy with big yarn and big needles to make to/from/at the Retreat AND my niece has been adopted by a new kitten.
Of course! My feline great-nephew needs a blanket for Christmas!
The pattern is the Big, Bad Baby Blanket. The yarn is Plymouth Encore--picked up at last year's Retreat swap table.
Kippy has declared the blanket suitable for cat-sitting.
It's a nice quick, boring knit and I might actually finish it in time--if Barney lets me have the needles back.
