Baby pink

I finished binding off the pinwheel blanket last night, and wove in the ends this afternoon. It took just about 4 1/2 skeins of vintage Bernat Berella, so it will be sturdy and machine washable, just the thing for someone with a brand new baby in the house.

Here, Rosie gives her paw of approval (hint – she’s ‘hiding’, and also purring her fuzzy little head off because she is in one of her favorite spots – under a blanket).

This blanket is yet one more reason why I am so glad I bought the 40 inch Denise cable at Lambtown last year. By the time it was the diameter I wanted, I had 500 stitches on the needles. Doing a ruffle requires that you knit into the front and back of each stitch, two times. I did it only once, because just the thought of having to then bind off 2000 stitches made me more than just a teensy bit twitchy.

I also finished and bound off my first scarf for the Red Scarf Project, but I’m holding off on any pictures of that until I see if I can’t whip out at least one or two more before we’ll be shipping them off next weekend.

    Sounds like that circ was a lifesaver. That blanket is adorable!

    Hezekiah loves to be under blankets too. They’re so cute.

    Pretty! Love the variagated yarn in this pattern.

    I’m at 250 of 500 planned stitches on mine. I was going to add that same ruffle but I think I’ll stick with a seed stitch border. I can add one more extension to my Denises so that the three longest cables are connected but I don’t think that takes me to 40″. I love this pattern so I’ll have to order a 40″ cable asap.

    Wow that is beautiful! And very inspiring. I have a babyshower that i need a prezzie for. We may have to do that. Did the pattern keep your attention well, or did you get bored with it?
