And The Cradle Will Rock...

Cradle Robber

Mrs. Mott, aka Peyton Flanders, IS The Hand That Rocks The Cradle.  Desperate from grief and bent on revenge on the woman who, in her mind, caused her husband's death and the loss of her unborn child, she becomes nanny to the baby of that very woman, wreaking her vengeance as she does, and damn, if she doesn't do it with wicked cunning and underhanded flair!   Oh!  And she knits!  A true Mean Girl if ever I saw one, thus earning her a spot as the inspiration for this installment.

The Loot

First up, there's a beautiful hand-crafted crystal stitch marker from Toluca Knit Jewelry and Fine Yarn, add a hand-made baby bottle-shaped breast milk errr....Bavarian Cream-flavored lolly, and Dizzy Blonde Studios Dizzy Blonde Superwash 2-ply Light Fingering is the base of this generous 115 g/4 oz 512 m/560 yd. skein dyed up in periwinkle and lavender.

Finally, an exclusive pattern from Jennifer Moraca Designs:  The Cradle Will Rock Shawlette.  This small shawl is designed with a busy new mom in mind, but it makes a fun and interesting and a lovely accessory for anyone. 

And, if for some reason you're so mean you want other pattern options, here's some more.
