So why am I saying this? Because of this....
I was given this yarn (100% cotton) and decided a nice little cover about the size of a carseat for a baby would be a good idea. Feather & Fan pattern, size 8 needles and I'm on my way...... I've got two full skeins left and the blanket is the size I had in mind. So here's what I'm contemplating....adding an edging all along the four sides. I'm not really interested in having any leftover yarn so an edging and maybe a hat and I'll finish off all the yarn. That's the plan anyway, but since I don't really figure yardage it's a crap shoot. Do you see any reason not to edge on a Feather and Fan pattern? I'm going to give it a whirl...nice thing about knitting for babies, they are all non-knitters. If it wraps them up like little burritos they're pretty much happy.

I had said over the weekend I was going out to visit some livestock - these cute girls were photo cooperative so as the bike riders zoomed past I snapped a couple of pictures. Sure wish I lived in the county somewhere....fun to have with my own supply of wool and a spinning wheel!!! Spinning, now that's a craft I hope to learn more about someday down the road :)
