Baby Blankets Everywhere
Basically, here is how this went together. Three panels of four squares were knit first. Then the three panels were joined by picking up and knitting two panels together. I picked up stitches along both edges then used a double needle bind off to join. After the three panels were joined, the border was added down each side, then across the top and bottom.
The baby shower is this weekend. I cannot wait to see the new mom's face when she opens her new diaper bag and matching blanket!
A few years back, knitting became a simple craft that became a passion. From scarves to much more complicated patterns, knitting is a way to decompress after a day at work, a way to express my creative side, and a way to give part of myself through knitted gifts. I hope you enjoy this blog!
