well it only took me until my son was 3 months old to complete his afghan ! In my defense I started it and put it down to do a cross-stitch sampler for his room.

Beautiful! And don't worry ... he'll be a baby for a while yet! :rofl:
An afghan like that is something that he will love for a long long time ... so I wouldn't worry about when it was completed.

A beautiful baby blanket pattern, and your work is beautiful, too. Where were all these great patterns when I was looking for my most recent blanket?

The blanket is beautiful and skillfully done.

Any chance you can sneak in a picture of the sampler somewhere here? Maybe next to something knitted.

What a beautiful blanket! Where did you find the pattern? I'd love to make one of those, and I have a new grandson (born 9 weeks early) who will need a blanket when he goes home in December.

The Bernat site is having issues at the moment, but if you go to www.bernat.com (http://www.bernat.com) you can search free patterns and it is the Bernat Baby Coordinates Chunky Cables Blanket (to knit). I did not use chunky yarn though - I've used Caron Simply Soft when giving as a gift and used Berocco Comfort for my sons. I did a guage swatch and adjusted my cast-on so that it would be a little larger.

Congrats on the new grandson !

I stated one for DD when I was pregnant. She's now 7 and its still not finished! Ack! In my defense I lost the pattern (but I admit I coulda made it up and finished it!).

So 3 mos old is great! And it turned out beautifully, so was worth the wait :o)
