Hey all! I'm stopping by to share this little darl with you today. Possibly the biggest thing I've ever knitted - a baby blanket. So cute.
The pattern was included in the Mollie Makes Issue 52 by Mariah Rockwell of Khaki and Chrome. I knew as soon as I saw it it needed to go into my to knit pile. I mean anything with pom poms is a winner with me you guys will know that!
But of course I didn't have anybody to knit it for until now. In May my lovely director Abigail at Pumpkin Events fell pregnant and at the first mention of a Baby Shower I knew exactly what my gift would be.
You probably won't think it, but choosing the colours was harder than it looks. I'm normally a bright colour kind of gal but with gender of the little one still being kept a surprise I had to go gender neutral. Originally I was going to make the pom poms red, yellow and navy blue which would go with the Winnie the Pooh wallpaper in the nursery. But I just wasn't feeling the primary colour thang.
So it was ivory all over. Classic and reusable for any future bundles of joy.
I used King Cole's Big Value Super Chunky Wool in Champagne. Which I was actually really impressed with and a decent price for a project you need a lot of balls for. Knitting in circular needles was new to me but it's pretty easy to master. I love the texture of the check type pattern and I'm hoping it's going to keep the little one nice and warm!
Have a great week!
