Veni, Vedi, Vici!!!
I finally finished my Moderne Baby Blanket!!! WOOOOO HOOOOOOOO! It ended up being about 38" x 46," which is larger than the original pattern (even with my modifications). Block 9 was supposed to be 54 garter ridges, and I stopped at 26 garter ridges. The rest was knit according to the pattern. I hesitated about making the border white (grimy little fingers grasping onto edges and all), but in the end I'm glad that I went with the white. I really like the contrast against the darker colors. It looks framed and, well, finished. I'm so thrilled to be done with this project! I have enough yarn left (I think!) to do a smaller blanket in the same colors, and I'm thinking of trying the log cabin. Do ya'll think I can do a log cabin out of just four colors? Hmmm...
Anyway, here's a picture of my finished product!
P.S. In case anyone is wondering why I chose these apparently random colors, I'll re-post that I'm want to have a nursery (one day!) decorated in black and white toile with accents of other black and white patterns and apple green. Here's a previously posted picture of my blanket with fabric swatches to better illustrate my intent.
You did such a beautiful job! I'm working on a Moderne Baby Blanket at the moment, and I can on;y hope that mine turns out 1/10th as good as yours. Love it!
Your colour scheme for the nursery is absolutely lovely.
I can't wait to see the Log Cabin you're going to do with the remaining yarn.
