I’ve begun working on a blanket for my little monster. I bought some beautiful organic cotton from Blue Sky Alpaca in Limeade. See how lovely it is?
I think the light greens, light yellows, and creams make a very happy combination for baby, whether he or she turns out to be a boy or a girl.
At the moment it’s still growing pretty slowly. I haven’t gotten the entirety of my knitting mojo back yet, or even most of it. But even at this rate it will be done before baby gets here. 4 rows a week.
The photo is a little washed out, but I’m working in a basic waffle pattern. It’s a very basic 4 stitch pattern with a 4 row repeat. I’m working it over 151 stitches. I’m not entirely certain how large that will be after blocking, but it looks like it will be the size I like to call “big enough.”
The cotton sheds a little more than I would like, but it’s nice and soft. I also thought cotton might work well down here in Texas instead of wool, simply due to the heat. I’ll update with any progress.
