Just finished the last of the baby blankets that I’ve been knitting. Knitting a baby blanket is truly a soul satisfying project for me. Just thinking of the new life coming, praying for health and happiness, remembering what it what like waiting for the baby to arrive – it all adds up to a happy feeling.
This blanket was for the daughter of a dear friend of mine – her first baby! Obviously from the color they knew they were having a boy. :)
The yarn is Bernat Baby Sport in the Funny Prints colorway and I used exactly one skein (it’s one of the great big skeins). The pattern is from my mom – she used the Lace Shell Stitch and added the borders.
This is another baby blanket that I’m very pleased with. I washed the blanket before gifting – naturally – and the yarn softened up and is very cuddly. Can’t wait to receive a picture of Baby Sidney with the blanket!
