I’ve been knitting a super secret project for the past few months but now it’s been gifted and I can finally tell you about it.
When the plan was announced for the baby shower (a board book and $$ from everyone) I had already started this blanket but I thought, well, I can still give her the blanket – just not at the shower.
I’m happy to say that I finished it last week and it has been given away and it was very well received. And I am so so glad to be done with this.
I enjoyed the knitting very much but, my friends, it was miles and miles of garter stitch. Easy and soothing but also bo-ring. It saw me through a lot of football and television, I’ll tell you that.
The yarn, for those who want to know, is Valley Yarns Haydenville, a superwash merino blend that is very very soft and smooshy. Perfect for a new winter baby to be wrapped in and snuggled tight.
Now we just need the little guy to show up. I’ll keep you posted.
