February project finally!

We found out that the husband's nephew and his wife are expecting a baby girl in June. I have been in love with Anne Hanson's Rosebuddie blanket since she released it and waited to see what the sex of the baby was going to be before I decided on a gift ot knit for them.

Finished: 2-14-11
Yarn: Berocco Comfort Baby in Pretty Pink (7 skeins)
Needles: 3.5mm for body and 3.25 mm for edging

Congrats to the expectant parents - The blanket is really pretty!!

I wish I could knit - I think knitting results in some very pretty art

Thanks to Nautical Knitter for the encouraging comment left on my blog - it was most appreciated!

That is very pretty. I hope the family takes good care of it for years to come.

Thanks Debi. I am not sure that they will take good care of it but the acrylic should help it withstand some abuse(I hope)! I think that I am going to make a "big girl" sized one with worsted weight for me--it is such a pretty pattern.
