Finished Knits: Babylove Blanket

Woohoo it's finished! This is the first big finished project since March. I feel like I'm seriously falling behind in the knitting department!

I am so glad it's done. Not only do I love all things baby and it just makes me happy that this is baby-related, but I'm pretty sure momma is due next month. (We can't get an actual date out of the daddy, he just gives us how far along she is.)

Now I remember what possessed me to knit a whole blanket in sport weight yarn - I love the feel and texture of small yarn! And this yarn is so wonderfully soft, especially after a good bath. Perfect for a new wee one.

I've named this blanket design Babylove for a few different reasons. The first is that I wanted to put a heart motif in it as a symbol of love and caring. And, Babylove was a song my mom used to sing to me when I was little so I thought it very fitting to go along with it.

Pattern: Babylove Blanket by Meg (pattern coming... eventually)

Yarn: Knit Picks Shine Sport (60% Pima cotton, 40% Modal) in "Butter" - 490 grams/10 balls

Needles: US 4/3.5mm Susan Bates Circular

Knitline: January 18th - May 23rd (Oh gosh. Take longer next time.)

YTD Mileage: Tiny yarn on tiny needles + big project meant 1,078 yards bringing me to 2.70 miles. Nearly 6 months in and I'm over 7 miles away from my goal for the year. Guess I better get crackin'!

Oh wow, I've seen you working on this for ages and never realized there were hearts in it. How cute! I hope the new momma loves it. :-) (I would personally yoink it to take naps under, like I do the one you made for Holly.)

It is very pretty and I am sure the new mom and baby will love it. I love the color and the tiny little hearts. Very sweet, now that gal can have her baby and not be waiting for you to finish the blanky. ;)

Your blanket is perfect! If I had the stamina this is what I would want to knit next. Right now the thought just overwhelms me. Maybe by the time you get the pattern out...

Blessings, Debbie
