Just in time for Christmas (though a bit late for baby’s arrival) I finished the baby blanket I was working on! I had intended to finish it before my cousin Libby’s baby was born, but alas, I missed that mark by about a month or so.  I packaged it up and sent it off as soon as it was blocked and dried, so now that her sweet daughter is warmly wrapped in it, I can show you.

The pattern is Jared Flood’s Shale.  It was a fun, easy, knit; and for people who aren’t constantly distracted like me, quick.


I used Juniper Moon Farm Sabine in a natural colorway.  The cotton content in the yarn makes it a bit more forgiving of washings, which, with an infant is usually necessary.



I am thrilled with how it came out, and as much fun as it was to knit, I can see myself returning to this as a go-to for baby gifts.

Now I am back to working on my Shepherd Sweater, which has been sadly languishing for far too long.  Perhaps I will make progress during our quiet holidays this year?
