Thanks!

First, of all, thanks to everyone who had premie baby knitting suggestions! I was surprised by the number of comments! Thanks for all those who de-lurked to help me, I really appreciate it. Anyway, as most of you suggested, I knit a hat. A teeny tiny hat, which might not be deep enough... Here it is atop my 2 lavalamps. (I've been clearing my apartment of clutter in anticipation of my move! Good bye lavalamps, it was nice knowing you, but you're a waste of my precious NYC space).

The #2 advice was to knit a blanket. I used the Log Cabin blanket pattern from Mason Dixon Knitting, but as I am not a fan of garter st (and because I only have one skein of Malabrigo), I decided to work in stockinette. Here's the RS:

Like my bag? It's from Brooklyn Industries. (It seems if I throw something out, I have to replace it with something else. Hey, at least the handbag is more useful than 2 lavalamps).
I think I like the WS of the blanket better:

Now, the Malabrigo is super soft, but I've been thinking of lining it with fabric... Just a thought... It would help prevent curling at the edges and most importantly, it would give me an excuse to go to Purl Patchwork.
