There is much rejoicing in our household today(okay, I'm the only one rejoicing actually), the baby blanket-a-thon is done! Finished last night, weaved in ends this morning, washed, dried, photographed, and here it is in all its cabled glory.
Stick a fork in it; it's done
Here's a close-up of some of the cables.
It was a fun blanket to knit and I'm glad it was cold for most of the time I was working on it--the heat the past couple of days made me question whether I would finish or not. It's the Aran Baby Blanket from Knit Baby Blankets by Gwen Steege(I think that's the correct name--I don't have the book in front of me). It's done in Encore worsted in Denim, which to me still does not even look blue--it looks like more of an Atlantic ocean green to me. I hope I'm not going color blind :)
It has the distinction of being the LAST finished object here in Utah. Tomorrow the movers come for two days of packing fun and excitement(at least that's how I'm propositioning it to the kids). I do think I'll get quite a bit of knitting done after today(today I have too much to do), because we will not have a TV or a refrigerator--so no cooking for me(I guess that's a plus!). We'll be staying in a hotel for the weekend BUT I'm keeping out a computer so I can still get online :) Then Tuesday it's hopping a plane to NY to deliver the final blanket.
Bring on the LACE baby!!!!
UPDATE: Thanks so much to everyone who commented on the blanket--I started it at the end of April and a lot of love definitely went into it(as well as the other two). I'd email you all individually, but right now I have to be a contortionist in order to post anything--computer desk is packed so the computer is squeezed onto a very tiny countertop and I have to type sideways--so please accept my most humble apologies for the group Thank You :)
