I need a challenge!
Hi all! I haven't visited this forum for a while now because I haven't had much time to knit. But that is what I do: when I start knitting again, I visit this forum every day!
I recently found out that I am pregnant again for the second time and I want to take up a challenge. Has anyone seen or knitted any baby blankets that are too gorgeous to pass up? I want it to be challenging because I am getting bored with stockinette stitch sweaters and socks. I want to see if I can do more!! I know I could find something on google but I would rather spend my free time knitting thеn searching
So if anyone has stumbled upon any advanced, take-your-breath-away blankies, I am ready to pay for the pattern!!
God bless everyone and happy knitting!!!

Okay, this one isn't hard, but it's kinda cute and fun. And babies always need more than one blanket.

Congratulations! If you do the Curlicue blanket, which I think is really cute, you might want to check Grumperina's blog, since I think she had some problems with it that she talks about working out.

I assume you are talking about this blog: http://www.grumperina.com/knitblog/.

I will have a look at it and see how it can help.

Wow thank you so much everyone for taking the time to reply! I just loooooooooove the Mt. Laurel blanket. Quite honestly, I haven't seen anything like it. BUT... I looked over the pattern and I'm afraid if I start it, I'll never finish it. It looks so confusing to me!! I guess I'm not as advanced as I thought I was... But I will def. print it out and keep it in my "Someday i'll be able to knit this" folder.
