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…. It has been a long time. 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.
