Knitting meets Stamping!

My two favorite hobbies....are meeting together!
Knitting meets Stamping!
I love how cute this is, and although I wish there was MORE, I am generally happy with this set! The lamb is just too cute!

Blankie blankie

don't look too close but I did crochet the edges, and knit it all the way...but I think i was tense at the end came out tighter (OH WELL)

Knit with acrylic yarn from Michaels - IMPECCABLE by Loops & Threads, 2 balls of GRASS yarn
I like how this feels. For an inexpensive yarn, it feels solid and nice. It was a very simple stitch. 4 rows of stockinette, and 4 rows of seed stitch. I find I don't like seed stitch. (too boring and I don't like switching back and forth.) I think I like stitches that make me count or cable rather than back and forth. It is harding on the wrists....carpel tunnel? I hope not!!! I guess that's always a possibility but then I wouldn't also be able to type on a keyboard either...aarrrgh!

Favorites on Etsy - not made by me, but you gotta check it out!!!
