New blanket for a boy in the making.

8 Jan

After the success of the last blanket, I immediately got to work on a blanket for my cousin.  She is expecting a boy in a few months.
For Christmas my mother in law gave me this book by Edie Eckman.

It is full of unique motifs.  I am so in love with it.
I have decided on a simple square with a bobble feature.  Here is the first complete square.

When I went to Lincraft I was looking for a light coloured grey to go with the light blue, dark blue and white that I already had.  However,  it is summer so the only grey available was this dark one, which I have fallen utterly in love with.  It is 8 ply 100% wool. I thought it felt rough when I bought it but it is the complete opposite.  The square I made is so soft and squishy.  It will be so warm for the baby to snuggle under.  The other yarns from my stash are acrylic.
The squares measure about 11cm across,  so I’m going to use 36 squares and do a big boarder.
Our cable had been out for the last 2 nights so I have put tje time to use by hooking up all the centers.

This is a few with their second round completed.

I think baby blankets might be my mew thing. I am already planning more for the future and I am only two days into this one!

    The motifs are awesome. And the possibilities endless. Great idea the gift for the baby. I think it will be much appreciated by both of them.
