With all the activity, my knitting has been slow but steady. Slow being the key word.
Since you last saw this blanket, I've added two more rows of hearts. This pattern requires some constant concentration so as not to miss the lace pattern.
I am less than a quarter of the way through this pattern. I hope to pick up some speed soon so I may gift this to its new owner.
What about you? What's your favorite thing to make as a baby gift? Do you knit or buy gifts? I go back and forth on whether or not to knit. With so many friends and the children of friends having babies, I could devote my entire life to knitting baby gifts and still not have enough for every person. What is your solution?
Technically, I finished all the knitting for this blanket today - on Friday.
But it's not finished in my book until I've soaked it and blocked it one more time to get the crocheted join and edging to relax a bit. Even in this picture, you can see how the seams are rigid and awkward. Once I soak and block them, they will relax and the entire blanket will have a uniform look.
Yes, I know it's the Year of the Sweater, but I just can't help myself. I really like knitting blankets.
