I usually do not post my projects until they are complete, but I thought I would change things up for this project.
Back in early 2013, I completed a letter B dishcloth. The pattern came from a dishcloth set of the entire alphabet. At that time, I thought that they could make a delightful baby blanket. However, no one in my family is expecting to have any more children.
Recently, a friend announced that she was expecting. In addition to being delighted for her, I wanted to start on a baby blanket for her.
I began by designing my project in Excel.
Because she does not like to find out the gender of the baby, I opted for yellow and green. Each block will have a white border. My goal is to have it completed in 6-8 weeks. I have not decided what to do with the four corner blocks. I may leave them blank or add baby items.
The pattern for each block can be found on Ravelry. I am using #4 needles and Bernat Baby Sport weight yarn.
I will be knitting the blanket is strips. The pattern has each letter knit from the bottom up, so I began with the letter X.
After one week I have one letter strip and one border strip. I decided to assemble as I go. I hate the assembling of projects so this will prevent me from having to complete it all at one time.
