View Full Version : WIP: Baby Blanket

08-26-2008, 05:19 PM
This is my first ever knitting project. I probably should've started with something smaller, but I figured since I've been crocheting for years I could do something a bit more challenging. Actually, this pattern is pretty easy, and the cables are not hard to do at all!

I'm making this blanket (pattern can be found here (http://fortheloveofyarn.com/Issues/07Winter/patterns/winter07_pearlsblanket.shtml)) for my friend who is due soon. I'm about 10" in, and I've been working on it a little bit each night for the past few days. Can't wait till I finish!

It looks very pretty, cables are fun and I love the color.

I crocheted for years before learning to knit, also, and I'm definitely having some 'challenges' making the switch, even after almost eighteen months.

Very pretty! I've seen the pattern before but it's nice to see how it's turning out for someone.

Very nice! Your friend will love it.

Now you know the secret. Cables look challenging so non-knitters are impressed, but they're actually easy to do.

Thanks for sharing...

Wow thanks everyone for all the sweet words! I will definitely post another pic once it's finished. I'm already anxious to begin my next project (a hat and scarf for my boyfriend), so I'm gonna start power-knitting to get this one done lol. :knitting:
