This is done:
It is a baby blanket. It is in a pattern of my own devising, although it’s so simple I’m sure a pattern exists for it out there. It is for a baby who is due on Sunday.
Yarn: Cascade Sierra Quattro(80 cotton/20 merino) in colorways 92, 93 and 96. Very citrusy and California-esque. Which is good, because the baby will live in California.
Needles: 4.25mm bamboo straights. They’re in between a US 6 (4.0mm) and a US 7 (4.5mm).
Time Spent: Four months, which is absolutely freaking ridiculous. I blame good weather, house hunting, house buying, and moving house for the delays. And my own knitting ennui that seems to drop in every summer.
For: The first baby of a wonderful friend whom I’ve known since we were 5 years old (or at least, since she was 6 and I was 5). She was in my kindergarten class and we were two of three (or four?) kids who already knew how to read. I’m still amazed that I’ve known her 23 years and we haven’t gotten sick of each other yet. Well done!
Perhaps I should have paid more attention during the counting lesson in kindergarten.
(I know some of you want house pictures. To you I say Patience! The busy bee flew in my life and is divebombing me repeatedly. Thank you for your understanding.)
