F.O.: Baby Blanket (Feather & Fan)....& FAST!
Wanted to share this because it was a wonderful quick knit for a baby you didn't plan to knit for. It's Edith Eig's Baby Blanket from Knit One Purl Two.

I have it up on my projects page on Ravelry if anyone wants the link or to see more pics. It took me only 3 days, one of those nights I was up until 4 a.m. with a sick hubby, so really it was about a 4 day knit for me. It's supposed to be a double-stranded project (2 yarns at once) in a lighter yarn, but I had all this Vanna's Choice (heavier yarn) in the perfect colors and chose to do it single-stranded instead.

The colors were given by the mother, these are the baby room's accent colors.

A righteous man has regard for the life of his animal (Proverbs 12:10)

Free patternns on My blog or on Ravelry:

Really nice! I have a friend due in May, and need to start a set for the baben. Trouble is, she's not going to find out what gender it will be, wants to be surprised. Your blanket would be great for a boy or a gir, just switching around a few colors.
