Another Baby Blanket

In my last post I said that I was working on a project for a friend. I don't remember if I told what. Anyway I was working on a baby blanket for my lovely friend Johnette and her husband, James who are expecting their first baby in July, which I can attest is an awesome month for birthdays.

I decided against my usual feather and fan blanket this time considering the fact that I knit two of them before I started on this one. I looked high and low for the perfect pattern and I hope Johnette agrees that I found it. The pattern is called the Heirloom Baby Blanket. It can be found on Ravelry.

I chose to use Pima Petite cotton yarn by the Unique Sheep. I purchased it from Eat.Sleep.Knit. (you want to buy from this store. They are fantastic and have great customer service. And I'm not just saying that so you'll follow my link and help me earn free stuff by buying from them when you do.)

I started in April.

And finished just in time for her baby shower in May.
I call it the Sunfire Heirloom.

Johnette, I hope you get years and years of use and enjoyment out of it!
This was a fantastic pattern and I will definitely be using it again. It was not a difficult pattern at all. Once I did the first couple repeats, the pattern got into my fingers and I didn't really have to think about it too much.
Now I need to figure out what project I want to start next. I think maybe I'll sew something.

It's a gorgeous blanket! It's so soft and I love the colors! I'm sure it will be a favorite of little Natalie!

Very pretty blanket! I have a stack of things like that I need to get on the ball with very soon or else all of the babys around will be adults before they get their baby blankets...
