View Full Version : FO- Serenity Baby Blanket

09-30-2008, 08:21 PM

There were a few times while knitting this baby blanket that I completely lost all passion for knitting it, but I still loved the pattern so I kept on (in the long run, I did enjoy knitting this). I definitely feel a sense of accomplishment for finally finishing the Serenity Baby Blanket (http://lauramartos.wordpress.com/2007/11/21/big-damn-post/). I started this blanket back in July, and just finished it today, September 30th. I LOVE the finished product, but I doubt that I'll knit this pattern again. I think I'm done knitting baby blankets for a LOOOOOONG time. Now that this is finished, maybe I wont feel guilty for working on Christmas gifts instead of baby gifts. The intended recipient for Serenity is due to arrive in mid-October (and we don't know the gender), but the last time I saw the expecting mom she looked more than ready to pop (and completely adorable, picture a model skinny person with a big beach ball shoved in her shirt). Adorable. Anyway, I used Caron Simply Soft for the blanket, and it took 3 skeins.

Wow, it's gorgeous!!! I may make something this intricate for a grandbaby but doubt I'd put that much work into most other baby gifts. I'm working on a feather and fan baby blanket now and am using 2 strands of Simply Soft on 11's. It's going fairly quickly and is beautiful, but personally I would like it much better on smaller needles so it would be daintier (is that a word? it looks funny). I just wasn't willing to put that much work into this project. I have too many other things I want to do too!
