Super easy blanket
Well I finished the first baby blanket to go along with the sweater and hat I posted earlier. The only thing hard about this blanket is it gets heavy as you get halfway and for me, it starts to hurt my hands and my shoulders because I try and keep it from stretching too much. I ended up putting it under my armpit to knit the other day when I took it to my dh's doctor appt. I looked like an idiot, but at least it wasn't dragging!

Awwwww, how PRETTY!! I love the colors, its beautiful (and so are the hat and sweater!) I love the ribbon edging, too. Is that the corner to corner pattern? I made one of those for my DD in homespun, cottage red (or some color like that). It is the softest thing!

Great job!

Wow, it is beautiful and looks so soft!

I admire you, I don't know if I'll ever be able to knit a blanket.
