Actually, the yarn shop down on the River, Fiber Universe has been doing this afghan since earlier this year. A couple of the ladies I knit with happened upon it earlier this Summer down there and started knitting a couple of them.
I went down a couple of months ago and felt the one on display out of SimplyWorsted. I impulsed ordered a sort of different color thinking I could use it for a baby afghan. When you impulse buy, sometimes over or under buying occurs. Thats what happened for this one. If I was going to do it for a baby to born in the future, I only would have needed one bag, but I ordered two.
Then when Knit 4 Together finally got on board, and everyone started ordering colors, I ordered two bags for one for me!
The last few days I have been scoping out Ravelry to find a pattern that I may be able to use for my lime green SimpliWorsted that I bought. I think I may have found it and this could be great for a boy baby in the future.
No, at this time there are no boys in our family or babies anytime soon, but one never knows. And I think it is good thing to have a baby hope chest going don' t you?!
