We’re due for another great-granchild in a few months. Granddaughter Christina is going to have a baby girl in September.
Now you would think that would be plenty of time to produce another baby blanket; but working on a nice warm blanket in the middle of a Bakersfield summer is not much fun. All of that lovely yarn sitting in a big puddle on your lap . . . it hardly bears thinking about.
So I got busy and knitted up a nice garter stitch blanket while the weather is still bearable. It’s only in the nineties, after all.
I think it turned out pretty well.
The back looks pretty good, too. I actually like the way the colors blend more softly.
There are ten colors in this blankie, plus the border. I have nearly twenty colors in this yarn; perhaps I can produce another blanket before September. If it doesn’t get really hot too soon, that is!
