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

My ravelry notes with more pictures: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/Shan...s-baby-blanket





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

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.

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!
