Baby Blanket!

I have been working on this baby blanket for longer than I can remember. This may sound over dramatic, but I actually started it in October of 2013 and just finished June of 2014. So….

I designed it myself, and it is not a difficult pattern, but it was the holidays, I took a full load in spring quarter heavy on the sciences, I moved my husband up to Toronto for a job, and then back again…. Well anyways, life happened. Finally it is done, and I have that warm, glowing feeling of accomplishment that only comes from creating beauty and love with your own two hands. I can’t wait to see my darling little nibling all wrapped up in it! I used Loops & Threads Snuggly Wuggly yarn prints, in pixie print and the pattern is essentially a basket weave with a seed stitch border. Super simple, but I think the texture gives it a little more sophisticated look.

This yarn is 100% acrylic, reasonably priced and machine washable, which makes it ideal for baby projects.  It can be washed easily when it gets spit up on and it wont sting as much when its out grown and sent to goodwill.
