I made a baby blanket this weekend. I hate that I always finish my projects at night, so I have to take pictures of them in the dark.

Also, I just realized I may never have posted a picture of the whole Totoro family I made. I know I posted the blue and white ones before but I made the grey one in November for my sister's bday to complete the collection.

Awww, ijdi! So adorable!

(And I can relate. I always want to take a pic first thing, then end up cursing the artificial lighting.)

I'm going to try to crochet a sweater for the first time. I'm kind of nervous because the pattern is so long! but i'm starting out with a baby sweater so at least if it comes out horrible, i won't have wasted too much yarn.

i really like this pattern, so hopefully it's not too complicated. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library ... tton-cardi

I finished as much as I could of this sweater. I need some more white yarn, but I'm super happy with how it came out. Making this top down style sweater was soooo much easier that I expected. I loved it! Now I don't know what to make next.

i totally want one for myself, too! i just need to get a better understanding of the increasing before i can try to enlarge a pattern. i would make those sweaters for everyone all the time!

I think I need an infinity scarf for spring. I'm thinking maybe this: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library ... nity-scarf

New blanket for my friends' new baby!

Image

I generally try to make stuff for babies without regard for gender, and I thought I'd done okay choosing colors (golden, yellow, green, teal, indigo), but when I showed it to my mom, she immediately said "oh, that must be for a boy". Does it really look particularly...masculine in some way?? Truly I do not understand this gender thing.

it's gorgeous! i don't think it looks masculine. it's just not overtly GIRLY colors, so maybe everything else falls into the "boy" category for some people?

Great work! I agree, I wouldn't categorize it as masculine, the colors are really perfect for anybody.

Obviously for a boy because there is some blue (even if it's not baby blue) and nary a pink or purple stripe to be seen! Or a bow or other girl-signifiers.

But back in reality, I really love the color scheme and I don't think it is particularly gendered in any way. I would love a blanket like that on my couch. :)

I honestly wouldn't read too much into what your mom said. I think it's a gorgeous blanket and I loved the color combos before I even read the comment. Just because someone thinks it "looks like" something for a boy, doesn't necessarily mean that it's a blunt instrument of the gender dichotomy. I'm 99.9999999% sure it's the immensely thoughtful gesture and generous (and functional! And beautiful!) gift that will be remembered and noted in this situation.

Thank you!<3

I'm sure my friends won't notice the difference, they're pretty mainstream/straight/gender-normative people anyway, and the kid does happen to have an M on his birth certificate. I was more thinking, like, did I subconsciously make the blanket masculine in some way (since I started working on it soon after they did the whole "it's a boy!" announcement thing)? Am I subliminally participating in the gender binary? Captain Overthink, that's me ;-)

i don't think you did. we were very big on NO BLUE NO PINK with our kids and everything was green and yellow. Often when we went out with one baby wearing green and the other yellow, people assumed green was boy and yellow, girl. Ask why, and nobody could say. I think people just have a need to try to classify things, not necessarily due to any real reasons! I think your blankie is pretty awesome.

I'm not sure how to post pictures, so hopefully this will go through alright. Here's a blanket I just finished for my Dad:

Thank you both! :) Yes, it came out to about 7 feet long, and took about 3 months to make (because I didn't have the attention span to do it all in one go and had a couple of other projects going in between).

For future reference, what's the best way to put photos right in the thread?

Making this was like a sewing project in slow motion (it's taken over a year). But it's finally done! Pepper can be as thrashin' on the outside as she is on the inside!

Can anyone recommend a good book for beginner sewing machine sewers? My experience is limited to hemming pants and sewing on buttons by hand. I'm seriously considering buying a used sewing machine and learning to properly alter clothes and hopefully be able to actually make an entire garment from a pattern. There are classes in my area, but they're always at wonky times and expensive.

I am officially a knitter! With lots of coaching and help from Kittee and Jordanpattern. Here's a top-down blouse with cabled raglan detail I finished last month:

Holy moly, erika. That is amazing. I'm pretty sure you can call yourself a knitter after you've made your first scarf. This makes you some kind of super knitter.
