I didn't get a whole lot of new inventory knit over the early or middle part of the summer. But I have a really good reason. You see, when I first found out I was pregnant the most important thing in the world to me (other than sharing my joy with my wonderful husband) was to find the PERFECT baby blanket pattern. First I picked out the yarn. I know most people pick out the pattern first, but I wanted to start RIGHT NOW so I sat down and went through my entire stash. It happens that I had 11 balls of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran sitting around. They had planned on becoming a sweater, but it hadn't happened yet and I decided the light grey/almost silverish color was a perfect unisex baby blanket color.
Cabled Baby Afghan. The price of the pattern is totally reasonable and the results are beautiful, so if you or someone you know is looking for the 'perfect' baby blanket pattern for a keeksake worthy blanket, I would highly recommend it.
I'm a little nervous because I entered this blanket in to the Tulsa State Fair and the results won't be out until next week. Eep.
This is the first (and only, so far) thing I have knit for Baby E but once I get past fall show season I have made the difficult decision not to accept any more custom orders for the time being and to focus on knitting more for baby. I have a few ideas of the things I think I want to do, I'll keep you updated as I go!
