Well I finally finished the baby blanket that I have been knitting. It felt like I have been knitting this forever; baby blankets do that to you.
Anyway I finished it about a week ago and have blocked it and sent it off to the recipient – little Jack. I am quite pleased with this knit. It is such an easy knit and one that you can memorise so you can knit it on the go. I carried it around with me for a few weeks to and from work (after not touching it for a few weeks); it even made a trip to Melbourne and when I went to Auckland, it is a well travel piece of knitting.
Jack came 4 weeks early and as he was still in hospital as he was still quite small, I didn’t need to rush finishing it off. His mum Sarah, sent me a photo after she received it with him all wrapped up in it looking very snuggly and warm. It makes me smile when I can gift something like this to a friend.
