There is little in this world that I find more satisfying than knitting something for someone who ends up loving the final product. That was the case with this blanket!
It’s HBear’s “baby” blanket which I didn’t finish until…*ahem*…he was almost 2. (I didn’t even start it until several months after he was born! Bad mama.)
I love the colors. I love the little seed stitch border. I…don’t love the size. It’s long and skinny, like a towel. HBear has absolutely no problem with this but it bugs me, I admit. I knit the larger size of this Zig Zag Baby Blanket and it wasn’t as wide as I’d expected. (The pattern says 32″. It is…not.) It would have been easy to add an extra zig or zag, and if I had been thinking (but I wasn’t because, newborn) I would have done just that.
I used Knit Picks Comfy worsted in five different colors and it’s holding up quite well, I must say. They had a nice big selection of colors and I didn’t want wool because I had been intending for it to be his baby blanket and he’s a July baby… Intentions. Anyway, it’s a lovely soft thing and I’m glad I chose the yarn I did!
