All wrapped up: baby blanket

I finished the baby blanket a couple of weeks ago (prior to my crafty confusion), but hadn’t yet had time to give it a proper photo shoot. But I finally got some time this weekend:

The baby blanket is done!

Here it is! All done. Finished measurements are approximately 36” by 38”. I added one extra set of repeats (both garter and lace) before and after the middle lace pattern to make it larger than the advertised 27” by 27” size. Just in case it’s a big baby. 🙂

I’m really pleased with how it turned out. I don’t think you can see the two different dye lots, and I think the acrylic/bamboo yarn is pretty lush for craft store yarn (and most importantly, very washable!).

So, if all goes well, my great niece will be all wrapped up when she arrives in July.

She will be getting a package of love from me: a blanket and a bib.
