Baby Blanket Finished

Well that is the knitting side of it. It still needs to be blocked and backed with minky. The finished measurements are around 65cm by 65cm which is a great size to fit into baby’s capsule for when she arrives and perhaps as she gets a bit bigger as a snuggle rug.
Just as a recap, I’ve used Moda Vera Pure Wool 8ply which come in 50 gram skeins. I used 6 of these in green. The pattern I used, I got off Ravelry and its called Mr. Bassil’s Blanket & Hat by Lindsay Tabsh. Here is the link to her blog post: knitting duck: my first pattern! Pictures after the read more link.

The blanket has taken me a month to do knitting at least a few lines each day. I used my 4.5mm Harmony Wood circular needles. They are a delight to work with and don’t make my hands sore or tired. The first pic was taken at night under a different light so apologies for the colour of the picture.

I will have yet another follow up post when I get to blocking and backing it which shouldn’t be to far off in the future. Just gotta find that left over minky in my many boxes in the shed.
Thanks for reading all about my Baby Blanket project and I hope you stick with me through my next yarn.
