I started this baby afghan for a friend in October. Due date isn't until mid-March, so I knew I had time, and it got pushed aside for Christmas scarves and other misc. things. After Christmas, I really started plowing my way through this, as I was getting tired of looking at it, and finally it's done!! It's much like one I had done 2 years ago (I posted a couple pictures here a while back) but the first one was using baby yarn on size 7's (I think). It took forever! I got lazy this time and used a double strand of baby yarn (Baby with size 10.5. I hope it's not too heavy!! It's Bernat Baby Soft, which is white with blue, pink, and yellow flecks of color. I also think I need a better camera. I can't seem to get a quality color picture or capture the detail I'd like to have. Oh, well!

Oh my goodness, it's just stunning! Did you design it yourself or use a pattern? That will truly be an heirloom for the lucky family that receives it. Great job!:cheering:

Thanks!!! Someone else at my knitting circle asked me about the pattern. Yeah, I made it up. :knitting: I find it fun to work out patterns using stitches I like. It's like putting a puzzle together....

Wow!!! What a work of "heart!" Gorgeous!!! My DD picked out her baby blanket pattern last week ... it's on SIZE 5's!!!! I don't think so. I've got to sit down with the pattern to figure out the number of stitches in the repeats and adjust the size with a larger needle. She isn't due until the middle of June, but I don't want to have time to only do this one blanket until then.
