WIP: Pink Baby Blanket. Now FO with Bunny Buddy
This is the Baby Blanket that I am working on for my DGD due in December. The yarn is Lion brand Pound of Love, and I am using size 10.5 needles in order to have a bigger blanket than the pattern gauge. The pattern is fun to do -- after I figured it out. I had to frog the first 20 rows, but now it is easy to see how the pattern goes.

Beautiful blanket---I've thought about making that but right now, there's no babies to knit for (might make it anyway).

Just beautiful and I love the color...I have a new grandaughter due in December: I can't wait. I'm working on a blanket now in pink, maybe I will due one in white.
Is it knitting up quickly?
Thanks,
Jen

It is very soft. I am enjoying knitting with this yarn. It is knitting up quickly, but of course not as quick as the little sweaters, because there are so many rows. One tip from me: I copied the pattern rows into a Word file and made the font bigger. Also where it says 'Row 19: repeat row 15' (for instance), I copied out row 15. The pattern was a lot easier to follow.

That's lovely..and I went to say it looks ultra soft and then saw your comment. It must be a pleasure seeing it all come together at this point! Good for you.
