Runs With Needles: Off to meet the baby.

Runs With Needles

Off to meet the baby.

Actually, the blanket will be leaving to meet the baby. :)

What: J's baby blanket
Yarn: Bernat Softee Baby. Less that one skein each of Mint, White, Pale Blue and Lemon.
Needles: 9
Pattern: Diagonal Baby Blanket
Lessons Learned: 1) It's all worth it in the end.
2) Next time I'm going to use a smaller needle size with this yarn. The FO is a bit too loose for my taste. It looks fine, but I think a smaller needle would make the blanket less stretchy.
Destination: My best friend, who's due to pop out my nephew in less than a month.

Smile for your close up:

I am really, really happy this blanket is done. The mind-numbing garter stitch was worth it in the end, but I'm ready to move on to something else now.

Tomorrow morning, as usual, will be spent with a bunch of very strange odd fantastic knitters/crocheters! (Or, as I like to call them: the hookers.)

Great people, pastries, caffeine, yarn fondling and there a better way to spend Saturday morning?

I've not been this excited about saturday mornings since I was a kid, when I'd wake up early to watch cartoons! :)
