Baby Blanket Bliss

After working with size 1 needles doing socks, it was a nice change of pace to begin this project. This is the beginnings of a baby blanket for my best friend, Lori. She will be having her third child, a boy, in July. It is being worked up with a combination of Lion Brand Baby Soft and Microspun Yarns. The colors are very nice and not your typical baby colors. Although it's a simple pattern, the texture is very soft. I can just imagine her new baby snuggling up in this. The more I knit this pattern, the more I want to make another one for a coworker and his wife. They're having a girl, so I'll use more reds and pinks, although I still haven't made up my mind yet. Lion Brand yarn has the nicest patterns from the beginner to experienced. You can always find new free patterns to make up something for that special gift, or something for you. You should definately go to and register for free patterns and their newsletter. I look forward to it every week.
