I'm soooooo happy that this is finally finished! It took about a month to complete. The pattern is Baby Blocks from the Leisure Arts book Our Best Knit Baby Afghans
The yarn is Bernat cottontots
in Wonder White. I figured that was safest since we don't know the sex of the baby. Knitted up on US 6 Addi Turbos (24" at first, then switched to 47" cables).
I enjoyed the process and the pattern but am dissappointed that the sides are curling a little bit and the yarn pills - both during knitting and after washing & drying - but it is very soft. Some of the YO look goofy, but it is hand made!
