"Think you can't change the world? Too late, you already have. It was changed for the better the minute you were born. There are more people than you can imagine who will never be the same because they came in contact with you, if only for a fleeting moment." ~Gail Purcell

My Second Finish

My practice piece is done! I tore this thing out a million times as I tried to learn how to follow a pattern, as well as increases (yo and k1f+b) and decreases (k2tog). I practiced a finished edge (slip first stitch p wise and k last) and giving my little buddy a cute face.

He is a bit raggedy and there are some loose areas and tight areas as I practiced my tension. And some rows on the head where I knit when I should have purled....plus some errors that I am not sure what happened! But I am proud of myself for sticking with it.

This little guy is a combination of 2 patterns.
The blanket is from the Lion Brand Baby Blanket Buddy

But I could not figure out the directions to make the head. So after looking around on Ravelry, I found the little pattern "Kitty Baby Blanket"  with a head that was much easier to do.

I used Bernat Soft Baby in Little Trees, size 6 needles.

So what should I try next?!
