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?
