I mentioned a bit ago that our family is expecting a new baby - Lumberjack and I are going to be Uncle and Auntie to a little boy! So, of course, I'm designing and knitting a baby blankie for him. I finally got cracking on knitting it a few days ago, after realizing how quickly his arrival date is approaching. (Mid-March is doable from now, right? Right!)
I'm knitting it out of Berroco Comfort DK, and really enjoying the experience. I've knit about a ball and a half up so far, and did a Russian join for the first time in my knitting career. Since the finished blanket will probably be thrown in the washer and dryer, I figured it would be best to have as few ends to weave in as possible. I'm absurdly happy about how I got the diamonds to line up with the edging, and I love the delicate look of the 3x3 basketweave stitch. I hope that little Hayden likes it too!
