Autumn's blanket

This blanket seems to have taken forever to finish. I started it when I was six months pregnant and finally finished it last week when my daughter Autumn was 4 weeks old. I hadn't originally planned to embrioder around the moss stitch hearts and the letter A, but after doing the back stitch embroidery on the keychain chicken, I decided to give it a go and I'm so glad I did as I think it makes it stand out more.  I had originally planned on lining the back of the blanket so I wouldn't have to weave in all the ends of the embroidery, but as the knitted fabric is so stretchy, it wasn't working for me, so I ended up going back and weaving all the ends in after all.  I used King Cole Smooth yarn which knits up really well.  My sister is now trying to convince me to knit one for her daughter Abigail, but after how long it took for me to knit it, she has no chance, sorry Cheryl.  Also I quite like the idea of it being unique.

  1. This is how my buddy Wesley Virgin's adventure launches with this shocking and controversial video.

    As a matter of fact, Wesley was in the military-and soon after leaving-he found hidden, "mind control" secrets that the CIA and others used to get anything they want.

    THESE are the same SECRETS tons of celebrities (notably those who "come out of nowhere") and top business people used to become rich and successful.

    You've heard that you use less than 10% of your brain.

    That's mostly because the majority of your brain's power is UNTAPPED.

    Perhaps this conversation has even occurred INSIDE OF YOUR own head... as it did in my good friend Wesley Virgin's head about seven years ago, while riding an unlicensed, beat-up garbage bucket of a car without a license and with $3.20 on his banking card.

    "I'm absolutely fed up with living paycheck to paycheck! When will I get my big break?"

    You took part in those thoughts, right?

    Your success story is going to be written. All you have to do is in YOURSELF.
