Oh baby

Blankie wip 3

A coworker of mine asked me to knit a baby blanket for her friend who is expecting. She didn’t have a pattern in mind, but had a few specifications: thinner weight yarn, acryllic, white. Her mother used to crochet baby blankets, so I figured I would do something similar, except with knitting. I decided on a basic garter stitch square with a lacey border – often like what you’d see in crochet.

The garter middle was a bit tedious and I kept fretting that it would be too small (I’ve never done a baby blanket before). This would fly on bigger needles and worsted or heavy yarn, but I’m using size 6 and DK. I finally finished the square a few days ago, and will start on the lace quite soon.

I wasn’t sure about the yarn choice at first (I rarely use acrylic) but it turned out being quite soft and squishy, and looks even better now that it’s blocked. Now, onto the lace…
