Moderne Baby blanket finally finished
After four months, I finally finished the Moderne Baby Blanket. The border didn't take me long to knit but sewing the ends took quite a bit of time. I used Lorna's Laces Shepherd Worsted in Ravenswood, Violet, Douglas Fir, Cranberry and Blackberry with size 9 needles. I knew it would be a bit larger than the one in the book but I had no idea that that finished size would be 45 inches by 49 inches. No wonder those last several blocks seemed to take forever. I made a few minor adjustments to the pattern for blanket just to try to make it a bit more interesting. Overall, I'm very pleased with the blanket and can't wait to hear from the mother and baby I'm sending it to.
