Started knitting the baby blanket

Hello Friends, 

How are you doing? I think we are getting closer to Spring now I can feel it in the air today.  I am hopeful anyways.  Today I did some yoga and felt very centered and peaceful and then did some readings for my courses that I am taking online.   I also worked a little bit on knitting the baby blanket for my cousin and happy to have finally finished one repetition of the basket weave pattern for the baby blanket.  I found out that they had a boy last week so that was very exciting! and it also means my needles should be clicking away much faster so I can get the blanket to them before her grows too quickly! then I would need to make a much larger blanket!  Here are some photos below of the blanket, hope you like it so far! :)



I am using a pattern for the basket weave baby blanket found at the blog Stockinette.  It is a great pattern and I find it easy to follow.  Check it out if you want to knit one too !

Have a great day!

  4. The yarn is lovely, basketweave stitch is nice to knit, it's easy to see where your stitches should be. This will be a lovely blanket for the new baby :-)
