I have finished it finally.

I have finished knitting my MS3!! I still need to wash and block it and I am REALLY REALLY REALLY hoping that when I wash it ALOT of dye comes out of one side.. here I will show you WHY!
Thats supposed to be two ball of Malabrigo Lace Weight in the same colour and same dye lot. Does it look like thats the same dyelot to you? I could do iwth it stripping slightly different but one side being dark and the other pale? Umm I got issues! Like I said to Mark if it doesnt come out Im going to have to dye it. Ive never dyed anything before will it work? He laughed when he seen it and said I couldnt wear it and have knitted it for nothing now because how bad it honestly does look being completely different! Once its blocked properly Ill show it all off. :)
Marks neice had a little girl so heres the blanket with the ribbon in it, and I think it looks SOOOOO cute now! :)
She loved it and told her little wee one that shes stuck carrying it around with her all the time now. That made me happy! :) And I had a bit of wool left over so I quickly knit this wee tshirt
those are wittle teddy bear heads up on the shoulder. The long sleeved shirt under it came from *coughpricoughmark* The daddy seen those and said "its going to take her ages to fit that! Its so big!" Umm thats because shes a newborn and these are for up to 3 months but before you know it shes going to be huge! I would have knit a bigger size but I didnt have enough wool so I had to go small. I dont like giving new moms 0-3 month clothes becuase I always think they get enough of that I like giving 3-6 or 6-9 because then they have one less thing to go out and buy when the baby gets to big. But I still think its sweet looking. Even Mark liked it. :)
Alright off to wash my ms3 so I can pin her out and get depressed over the colour mismatch!

Wow, really adorable, what great gifts! Where did you get the shirt pattern, or did you make it up yourself?
