Burp cloths for Mary..Knits By Rachel

I told you that when I found the perfect pattern and started to knit up the burp cloths I would let you know.

This is the pattern I chose, an absolute perfect pattern for a little boy. 

It is one of Rachel's designs. 
Rachel who? 
Aw come on, everyone that loves to knit LOVES Rachel's designs!
Have a peek at her web page and you will fall in love.
All of her designs are so crisp and clean looking, and, she also provides a blocking tutorial so you can achieve the same great results.

Later on this afternoon I will post pics and information on how I turned this into the perfect burp cloth that makes a great baby shower gift.

And for those of you who have followed the blog,
"Yes, I have purchased some of her patterns, and they are great!"

Congratulations!..and SERIOUSLY???

glongley is the winner of the Interweave Knits magazine.
Congratulations! I left instructions in the comments of the post you won on. Thanks for commenting!

Now, SERIOUSLY! One post! It's pretty sad when you can't even give something away!
I know people read my blog. Does no one want anything for free?? Did you think I was collecting addresses to start spamming you or filling your mailbox up with unwanted crap??
Come on, this is Leah ;0) we are talking about. I just didn't want the magazine. Hell, I'm even paying the shipping!

Not that the winner would complain I am sure! She's very happy no one else had anything to say!

Interweave Knits-giveaway

I honestly can not remember the last time I looked through an Interweave knits magazine and thought "OMG, I must knit that!"
It's nothing against the magazine, it just hasn't had anything to inspire me in quite a while. In fact I get a lot more inspiration on Ravelry
No!! I am not giving my subscription up! As soon as I do they will come out with one so full of things I want to knit, it would be sad.
So to solve my dilemma you can have every one that I can't find anything to knit in.
I have a bookshelf full so you might want to check back every once in a while, I'm tired of cleaning around them.
Today's is the just out Fall 2012 issue.
If you want it, leave a comment and I will have BFF pick a number. That's it! We will start today and go through Sunday. I'll have the number picked Sunday and winner announced here Monday afternoon.
Good luck!

My first binding, I think. Is this really binding?

It was time to decide how to finish this quilt. I have a navy blue back for it but I wanted that to be a border around the front.  Not ...
