and matching stripd hat. Are they not so darling? I am charmed by my knitting cleverness.
This has been my favorite blanket to date. I love everything about it. I love the colors. I love the yarn (Lion Cotton Ease). I love the fact that I finally figured out how to pick up the stitches in a way that the back looks as good as the front. And the hat! It's a helix striped hat, and this helix technique is so so great. I kept shoving it into people's faces and saying "ISN'T THIS SO GREAT?!" (Several of my friends are glad I am finished with this :) )
To the nice family expecting their third child - and first boy - best best wishes and we can't wait to meet your son!
