Knitting: a baby blanket

A very special baby is due next month.

I've knitted for this baby before, but it needs a blanket too. At least one.

I enjoyed knitting this blanket - the lace keeps it interesting to knit, even though it's a big rectangle. The results were good - it hardly needed blocking and was exactly the size I was hoping for.

The pattern is very, very simple though, and would be ideal as a simple introduction to lace. You can read more about the yarn, pattern etc on my Ravelry project page.

It would have been quite a quick knit too, if I hadn't gone crazy with Christmas knitting. Ah well.

Now. I think this baby is too special for one baby blanket. Off to knit another. Baby is due in a fortnight. Clearly, I enjoy a challenge.
