I also posted this in the Christmas KAL
I knitted this as a christmas gift for my best friend Ruth. it was knitted with Caron Simply soft in sage. using Cloverbamboo size 4 needles. the pattern is the baby layette from Vogue knitting. Alexander Nicholas was born December 20 and is 8lb 8 oz.
She used the blanket in his first pictures. I am sooo touched that she did that. here is the blanket and the beautiful baby.
I have other pics of the blanket it i just have to upload them. i'm having issues with the usb. so i just have this picture of the blanket. but that's ok cuz Alex is soo cute.

thanks so much. it took about 3 1/2 weeks to complete the blanket, working on it every night when i came home from work.

What a cutie! The blanket is wonderful. My DIL had my grandson's first pictures with the blanket I knit also and I was very touched and flattered!

isn't that the best when you get to see what you made/gave in use!? Very sweet!

it is great to see my gifts used and appreciated. His older sister is the person who appreciates my knitting the most. I made her baby blanket and she still loves it. and she is 4 now. She forbade me from embroidering his name on it like i did on hers. So hers can be more special. LOL
