I finished this set a few weeks ago. It is easy to run up and I just love the popcorn stitch. You can use it for a boy or a girl. I can't read what book the pattern came out of as I only have a photocopy of it. If someone wants it, I will type it in for them.

Thanks. The blanket is just a plain old dish rag pattern. You know, you cast on 4 stitches, knit a row and on the next row you k2, yo, and knit to the end. Make the blanket as big as you want (measure from cast on tip to needles) and when you get the size you want (usually 26" for a newborn), start decreasing by k1, k2tog, yo, k2tog, knit to end. When you get down to 4 stitches again knit one row across and then cast off. The holes in the pattern are the perfect size to put 1/4" satin ribbon through. It makes a cute blanket if you use verigated yarn as well. Kind of looks like a rainbow.

I always have some knitting on the go. It's just a question of when it's finished... but so far I only have one project that is in mothballs because I have no earthly idea how to finish it. It is an Aaron knit sweater and has nine patterns across. I got as far as the neckline on the front and can't get any farther. It is really hard to describe in writing. One fine day I will finish it for the hubby, I hope!!!

:teehee:

Going to the trailer for a few days and then when I come back I will post the pattern here for you, unless there is a special place we are supposed to post patterns.

I'm looking forward to the sweater pattern too! Everything is so lovely. What yarn did you use for the blanket?

Very cute. I would love a copy of the pattern. I have a pattern for a baby blanket that uses the popcorn stitch but I don't know how to do a popcorn. Can you explain how it's done?

See the section called Pattern Central. I posted the whole pattern for how to make this set there about fifteen minutes ago. I bolded the popcorn pattern so that you will know how to do it in future. Sorry it took me so long to post the pattern but I had to find an afternoon free so I could type it all in for you. Enjoy!
