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.
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:

Tomorrow morning, as usual, will be spent with a bunch of very
Great people, pastries, caffeine, yarn fondling and knitting......is there a better way to spend Saturday morning?
