And Again

Here is another one of my long lost FO's. I had been waiting to post this one with the hopes that there would be a cute matching Elefante to go along with the blanket - but no, I just didn't have it in me!

All machine washed and ready to go -




The back even looks pretty cool with all the seamed ridges -



Pattern: Garter Stitch Baby Blanket in Baby Knits for Beginner's, by Debbie Bliss
Yarn: Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran #102, 015, 002, 502, 011, 006, and 010 (1 ball of each color)
Needles: US8, I ended up using DPN's since the blocks were so small!
Measurements: About a 23" square after washing
Started: January 26, 2008
Finished: February 2, 2008
Other Details: This was my second time knitting this blanket (the first one is pictured here), and I just can't get enough! Its a great way to play with lots of beautiful colors, and it really goes by super quick (don't get overwhelmed by the 56 squares, they are only 3")!

I agree, the blanket looks totally wonderful. Even the wrong side looks great. Who is the lucky baby receiving it.

It is so gorgeous! My friends had better start having babies soon because there are so many lovely things to knit!

That is really beautiful! Love the colors and the style, just beautiful! I don't think I'd have the patience for all the seaming though.
