About 16 months ago, I started knitting a baby blanket for my friend's first grandchild. Somewhere along the way I put it down for a vacation... and never picked it up again. To be honest, I don't even know where I stashed this project. I saw my friend last week and apologized. Her granddaughter is nearly a year and a half and I have no gift. She told me she's only done about a 4" square for her granddaughter's project, too, so not to worry. But I really wanted to have a gift for her, so I decided to knit my go-to project.
The Wonderful Wallaby.
I knit this in a size 2 and it only took a week to complete. I'm working on a few cute accessories to add to the cuteness and charm. 14 months vs one week. No contest. I think this might be my new standard baby gift.
Whew! Problem solved. Gift completed.
