FO: Babes in the Woods blanket
 
2011 will forever be known to me as The Year of the Baby Blanket. I spent 12 straight months knitting nothing but baby blankets. Here is the last one!

Free pattern from Caron: http://www.caron.com/projects/ss/ss_...s_blanket.html

That is my co-worker's son, James, who is now 5 weeks old. :heart:

Oh, how adorable! You've done wonderful work on your baby blankets. This one is a perfect combination of color and pattern. And the baby agrees.

It is really pretty. And the baby looks so cozy :)

Thank you for all of the kind words, ladies.

My coworker texted me that picture with the caption, "He was fussy so I wrapped him in this blanket and he calmed right down. He may not like you but he likes your work!"

I spent the afternoon with them yesterday and tried to hold James 3 separate times and each time he started to cry after 3 minutes, haha. I finally meet a baby I WANT to hold and he wants nothing to do with me! So it goes. It will be a funny story to tell him when he's older.

Don't feel too bad, my daughter didn't like to be held when she was a baby, even by me. She made up for it later, was a clinger par excellence, so maybe this one will want to huggle & snuggle with you when he gets a little older.

What a gorgeous blanket and for such an adorable (though sometimes uncooperative) recipient!

You did a fabulous job on this blanket, and I bet your coworker was thrilled!
