My first baby blanket!

Here are a few pictures of my 1st completed baby blanket!  I'm so proud!

Pattern Review
Pattern - Lion Brand Yarn Seed Stitch Baby Blanket (#kpl-bafg)
Yarn - Lion Brand Yarn / Pound of Love - Antique White
Knitting Needles - Size 10 (US)

**Note on the pattern - this pattern is for a hooded baby blanket.  I didn't have any yarn needles, and I didn't have any sewing needles that I could use on the yarn - so, I omitted the hood.  This is just the blanket part of the pattern.

The pattern was very straight forward - although, I had to get used to the feel of the seed stitch (k1, p1) which felt very awkward when I first started this blanket.  So, the majority of the first half of the blanket - all I did was learn this stitch.  LOL! 

I made this blanket specifically for a baby shower gift for someone at my job.  The blanket was a big hit.  Although, it didn't cost me much money (approx. $8) - I had to buy size 10 needles, but, at least I was able to buy the yarn half price during a sale.  It did cost me quite a bit of time.  I've been stressing over the whole rain inside my apartment drama - so, this knitting project was a welcome distraction. 

Needles Up,
Always Audrey


  1. Great job Audrey, I too recently finished a knitting project, the other hand to the fingerless glove I was making.

  2. Hey Audrey! I'm writing to check up on you. I hope you are doing well.
