Originally, I had followed it to the tee - including stitch count - but it looked entirely too small. Granted, it's been over ten years since there was a newborn in the house but I'm pretty sure she was bigger than what the original image envisioned. So I frogged it and started over, doubling my beginning ring. Now it looks like you can tuck a baby in and they will be most comfy.
I need to get this done because it will be my granddaughter's first Halloween costume! You have no idea how touched I was to have my son ask me make it for them. Naturally, I used it for my Knitting and Crochet Blog Week theme for today, Experimental Photos. I took all the pink objects from my desk in my office and photographed them. I spend so much time with a camera in my hands, I wasn't really sure what to do... I was honestly without inspiration. That rarely happens so I decided to just do what I wanted and trust it would all work out in the end.
It may not be the most moving photo but I think the composition is good, the palette is fun, and the subject matter is close to my heart... those are basically the only elements you need in order to make a nice picture. Now, I've got to get back to my crafting or that little girl is going to arrive before I've gotten anything finished!
