My FO: Aidan's Baby Blanket - A Must See!!! :D :D
It's been roughly two months in the making but I'm really happy with how this blanket turned out. The only thing that is the downside about the blanket is when I did the rectangle of stockinette stitch to write Aidan's name in it, it was a lot wider horizontally than the rest of the blanket because the rest was done in a cable stitch which drew the yarn in. Lesson learned.


OH and the other major bummer? My aunt is only about 20-ish weeks and after CONFIRMING at 15 weeks that she was going to name the baby Aidan Miles, she recently told me she's thinking of other baby names.

Here's the blanket:

THe color change you see in the middle is not noticeable at all in real life, it's just the way it turned out with the flash.

Without flash:


Close up of name:


Even more close up of name:


And close-up of border:


I know it has its faults but I LOVE my new blanket!! And I hope and pray that she won't change the baby name!!!

That's beautiful! I hope she won't change the name, too. Lesson learned though.. the name isn't final till the ink is dry on the birth certificate.

It is beautiful. I think you should give it to her ... guilt her into NOT changing the name

It's fantastic! Did you use a pattern, or wing it? Here's hoping she doesn't change the name!

Very pretty! Maybe you could go ahead and gift it to her an early congrats blanket so she will know about the name.
