With today being Mother's Day, I had unlimited time on the sofa for knitting. :) This allowed me to finish up the Baby Love Diagonal Baby Blanket that I was working on.
The pattern for this blanket is a free one from Lion Brand. You can find the pattern by clicking here. The only difference that I made was that I worked 163 stitches before starting to decrease. It still made a good sized blanket. Seriously.
Here's a quick view of the outer "edge" of this blanket. I love that you work the edging as you are knitting the blanket. You see...I'm a novice knitter. I am not very good at it at all. I can cast on, knit and yo, that's about it. Everything else has to be looked up on You Tube in order to even attempt it.
Now...on to the blanket particulars. I used a large skein of Bernat Baby Sport in the color Funny Prints. I still have a good amount of this skein left over. There's more than enough left to make a baby sweater and maybe a hat as well. The circular knitting needle was a size 8.
I know I've said it before, but this is my favorite knitting pattern for a baby blanket and I find myself using it over and over again. I think I've made 3 or 4 of these now and I will keep on making more of them.
