Hi all,

I just wanted to share a pic of my first finished project. Yeah! It ia baby blanket for my niece, Veronika. Although this is the first project I finished, it is the second project I started. (Still working on the first project I started, which is a shrug). I did not have a pattern for this blanket, I just winged it. For the letter in the center, I printed out a "V" on graph paper and calculated the pattern from that. And yes, the bottom borders are intentionally larger than the top borders--I was trying to be artistic. :)

That is the most original pretty baby blanket I have ever seen my brother is going to have a baby any day(you know what I mean) and I would like to make a blanket for him or my toddler and I just can't decide what to do.

You "winged it" quite well!

The inital came out perfectly.

When I was in art school, we always cut the bottom of the matts for drawings and watercolors wider than the top.

That IS very nice!! What yarn did you use? Are the pink and gray edges a moss stitch? It looks very fancy... would love to see a pattern!!

Thanks to all for the kudos! It gives me a lift!

The yarn is Caron Simply Soft from Wal-Mart. The pink and grey are in double moss stitch. I wish I had written out a pattern before I sent it off! Maybe I can find my notes still lying around. The "V" I patterned using a graph paper image on my computer, and superimposed the V on it.

He he. THANKS for that comment! I did study graphic design, and find myself wanting to design some more knitted items.

:?? I have been looking for a way to put monograms or other simple shapes onto some garter stitch square swatches (I'm going to seam them up and make bean bags for my toddler to use as a bean bag toss game)

Does anyone know of a good website or book that I can do something like this monogram- letter-graphing-design miracle thingy shown in the GORGEOUS baby blanket???

Thanks in advance...

Very pretty!! :heart: I love that yarn, too. Made my DD an Harry Potter Scarf with it last fall. Super soft!!!

mrosen: look at http://www.knittingknonsense.com She has the alphabet and many cute designs for dishcloths that knit up into squares. They might be a little big for bean bags . . . maybe if you didn't use the border, that would make them smaller or smaller needles. :thumbsup:
