Yarn Along "knitting for babies edition"

As I was putting the little people to bed last night, I got a notification on facebook letting me know that the package had finally arrived. I am so happy that my gift made it across the ocean safely and that my niece has it before her baby makes his/her arrival.





I absolutely loved making this blanket. It was easy to memorize, yet had enough little blips to keep it interesting. The yarn, Knitpicks shine, is so soft, and the drape of the blanket is perfect.

I had started this newest little bunny while we were whiling away in the hotel. I picked her back up once I sent off the blanket. I can show you my progress because the friend I am making this for does not get on the computer. No worry of spoiling the surprise!

The one thing I am not happy with is the nose. If I could easily go back and change it, I would. I still think she is cute though, so I am going to leave it be.

Like I said yesterday, I am trying to read "The Diary of a Country Priest", but am having a hard time getting into it. I won't give up yet though!

Here she is, sitting on my reading material, waiting for her dress to be made. At least she has cute bloomers.

Hanging out with the little boy bunny, who I used as a reference.

The bottom of the dress. It will have another little stripe if I have enough blue left!

Joining Ginny, as usual.

  1. I LOVE this blanket, Jenny! Did you use a pattern? There are so many baby blanket patterns out there that sometimes none of them look special enough to take on, but I would knit this in a heartbeat for my coming-in-September baby. Perfect gender neutral colors too. We don't know if the baby's a boy or girl either. Great job!

    1. I found the pattern on Ravelry. It is simply called "chevron baby blanket". This blanket knits up quickly, so you could easily have it made for baby "September"!
