Fab Blankie

Jackson Five? Yes? No? That's kind of the feel I was going for with the blankie I made for little Michael. I call it the Fab Blankie. Or maybe the Fablankie. Whatever. Here it is.

I don't know when I will actually be able to give it to the little guy, since he's 2 hours away in a Children's hospital, but I'm sure he knows it's here waiting for him.

I didn't write the pattern down as I went. To be honest, I was just trying to use up all that yarn. Do the colors seem familiar? A lot of them are leftover colors from the bagholders.

Fear not, my loyal minions. I have a nephew about to be born in about a month. He will need to be blankie fabulous, as well. I'll jot down the pattern for you then. I promise.

Now go back to work, or homework, or cleaning, or whatever it is you should be doing instead of playing on your computer.

It's adorable, and best of all it used up some leftovers!
Now...do I HAVE to get back to work??? Just when I was having fun. ;)

Nice blanket. I think I have a similar pattern from my great aunt but she didn't have a written pattern either. Your completed version looks beautiful!

That's pretty great blanket. Paired with a baby-sized leisure suit with bell-bottoms and all, that would the most happenin' kid around! Really though, it's very chic. Nicely done.

Oh, congrats on being published! Your pattern looks great on the cover there!

I found you through Ewe Devil. I must say I LOVE the bag holders and this blankie! Any chance you have the pattern for the blankie written up yet?
