Nicely rolled up for the photo call to keep it semi secret, because this blanket is for a baby due in a month's time. I am so glad to have it finished! It is colourful, to say the least. It should give the baby something to look at in quieter moments.
I used up oddments of wool left over from previous projects. Many of them were random yarns from which I have made baby cardigans, so that gave an even livelier colour scheme.
This is the first project I have made in the woven effect stitch, and I am very pleased with the outcome. The blanket has a firmer texture than one expects with knitting, so it should keep its shape fairly well and stand up to all the kicking and stretching that a baby will give it.
Now I shall relax and look forward to seeing the baby!
