New Project: Knitted (::gasp!::) Homespun Baby Blanket

Here's blanket #2 for KMP's bun in the oven. Detail on blanket #1 can be found here.

Knit Homespun Baby Blanket 1

Can you believe I'm knitting this blanket??? Me neither. I've never knitted a blanket before and given the time crunch I'm under, I'll be lucky if my slow knitting skills get the job done.

I'm using size 11 circular needles and Lion Brand Homespun yarn in Corinthian. The color isn't your typical choice for a baby blanket but it was the request of the Mom-to-be. I, myself, love it as it is colorful, soft and warm. Plus it's washer/dryer safe so Mom can throw it in the wash without worry. I've gotten a number of compliments from people during my commute and trips about how lovely the color is.

I'm knitting and purling good vibes into every stitch and row. Can't wait to meet the little guy in person!

I'm sending you speedy good knitting vibes. I am planning a far smaller knit gift for KMPs wee one. That way I have a better chance of it being done on time!

It's lovely. I haven't started on my hat yet and I have to make some booties for another baby on the way. YIKES! Time flies.

Did I tell you girls that KMP's due date is now around December 15th???

Thanks for the heads up. That's one less week to knit!!!!
