FO: Emerald's Blanket
Finally off the needles and ready to welcome our little grandaughter!

Emerald is scheduled to make her San Diego debut by Sept 16.

I'm pretty pleased with the way the blanket turned out.

This was knit on US#8 with "I Love This Yarn" Iced Sugar #580

The pattern is the Garter Rib Baby Blanket (free on Ravelry)

Oh, how lovely. Perfect for San Diego, too. Emerald will look beautiful in her welcome home blanket, I'm sure

What a darling little blanket--and just in the nick of time, too!

So are you close enough to enjoy the baby? Hope so! Have fun!

Hi Antares,

Thanks! I was pushing a bit this last week to try to get it finished and was pretty relieved when I reached the cast-off row Doing the finishing had to wait a day since there's this complication in my life called 'making a living'.

We are long-distance grandparents. We have 3 year old boy-girl grandtwins in Dallas and our newest grandaughter will be in San Diego. We're down near Houston so it's a 5 hour trip by car or by plane to get our hands on the little darlins'. Probably a good thing for all of us or they'd all be hopelessly spoiled

Is Emerald (like the name, green is my favorite color) here yet? Your blanket is lovely. The texture makes it look nice and thick.
