I've been tempted before to post about the strange quality of the patterns in the 2008 Knitting Patterns a Day calendar, but tried to follow the "don't say anything if you can't say something nice" advice we all get from our mamas at a early age. However, today's pattern forces me to say something. The pattern for September 20 & 21 is for a "Garter Blanket" from Bernat. The instructions are cast on 85 stitches, knit back and forth on a size 15US circular needle in garter stitch for 45 inches. Cast off. That's it! Don't think I'll be buying the 2009 edition.
Last year on this day, I posted a cute picture of my sons. I can't believe that another year has rolled around to their birthday. Here's a photo of them at around 3 months of age. My scanner isn't hooked up right now, so I took a digital photo of a print--quality not so good. They still look cute, though.
