Lavender Baby Picture Blanket-Finished

I recently gave my grand-niece a lavender sweater for a new baby girl due in Nov.

And, I had a lot of this yarn left over from another project that I had never finished.  So, I made a baby blanket to go with it. 

Sorry for all the colors being washed out.  I can't figure out how to get my camera to work at night time with the house lights, but the blanket and the sweater were knitted with Caron® Simply Soft Yarn in Lavender Blue (#2691)

I used size 7 (US) needles and I knitted all 9 of the patterns in Baby Washcloths to Knit (Leisure Arts #4352) by Melissa Bergland Burnham, but I needed 12 squares, so I also incorporated 3 different patterns that I found from the net.

After sewing all of the squares together, I tried my hand at doing some single crochet all along the edges.  I think that it turned out pretty nice and I can't wait to gift it.

I'm Knitting As Fast As I Can...

I'm knitting as fast as I can....

A couple weeks ago, I went to a baby shower for a grand-niece who is having a baby girl in Nov.  I gave her a lavender cabled baby sweater.  Then, I decided to knit a baby blanket to go with it, but I knew that I wouldn't have it finished in time.  I finally got all the square done and now I have to assemble the blanket together.

I have another baby shower next week and I finished a baby blanket, but I decided that I just had to knit a little white sweater to go with it, too.

Then, I decided that I liked the Triple Wave afghan that I had made for my DD and her husband so much that I decided that I should make one for myself.
