So I’m making my friend a baby blanket.
It’s my very first knit blanket ever. It’s not challenging at all. I’m using the pattern on the back of the skein Bernat’s Baby Coordinates Sweet Stripes – Purple Blanket. It’s very very easy.

It’s just taking me FOREVER!!!!!!!!
I started it over a month ago and I work on it about an hour to two hours each day. I’m only just now past the halfway mark and am finally decreasing. It’s a good thing the baby isn’t due until May because it looks like it’s going to take me that long to finish it!

Here it is just past the increasing rows:

**Small funny…my girls (who also knit) wouldn’t let me knit this in public when I first started it. They said that on the circular needles, it looked like I was knitting a THONG for someone with a really big butt LOL!**

And wouldn’t you know it, I volunteered to make my coworker a baby blanket too. Anyone out there have a baby blanket pattern that goes by QUICKLY that would be suitable for a boy? I was thinking big & lacy on huge needles would be quick, but my dilemma(s) with that is that the baby’s fingers & toes would get caught in the “holes” and big & lacy doesn’t quite go well for a baby boy.

Help a girl out? I wouldn’t want to have to *gulp* crochet her a baby blanket just because it’s faster….poor baby.

Think of the baby….
