View Full Version : FO: My first Baby blanket

I don't post much, but wanted to show off my first finished object: A baby blanket.

Pattern was from one that I got a Hobby Lobby, but can't remember the name of it off hand. Worked on US 15 with two strands of Caron Simpley soft in complimentary blues.

Learned a valuable lesson that you don't start off working on bamboo needles and then switch midway to circ's. it's obvious in the picture as to why.

It took me a while to complete and the baby was four months old by the time he got it. Oh well, it's the thought that counts.

I LOVE Simply Soft!! And I don't see where there was a difference when you changed needles--I just see a really pretty soft bankie!! :thumbsup:
