Baby Blanket

The baby blanket I knitted for Kim's shower is done. Kim & Gerry's baby is due in early August and, yes, it's a boy. I'm sending out the blanket tomorrow via UPS in time for the shower next weekend. (Boy they better be careful with THIS package!) I would have loved to go but I'm meeting my friend Eileen in NY for a long weekend of gabbing, eating, laughing, and doing NY stuff. I'm really looking forward to seeing her as well as meeting her daughter Jen for the 1st time. Poor Jen. She definately will see her Mother in a new light. Eileen & I know each other since we were 12 years old and we get a little "silly" when we get together, (definately an understatement!)

The pattern is on the Major Knitter blog in the free patterns area. It was made with the recommended yarn, white Red Heart Soft Baby
and “Twinkle” Red Heart Soft Baby with 1 strand of each held together. The pattern said to use size 15 circular needles but I used 13 as I knit very loosly and it came out true to size. You only need 1 skein of the white and 2 of the Twinkle.
