What a beautiful blanket! That Shine really is beautiful--it is exactly like its name--it has a great glow to it :)

Love it, Carolyn!

Lovely! You did a great job on this blanket.

Its so refreshing to see a knitter getting something done in plenty of time rather than running out of time - you rock!!

Looks gorgeous! Tell us - how do you think the Shine will behave after repeated washings? I'm always very hesitant about baby blanket yarn selection because I'm afriad the fabric is going to pill and/or fall apart!

Oh, it's beaufiful! It looks like a big perfect wedding cake. (Am I hungry?) Seriously, I would be so overjoyed and grateful if I were to receive such a blanket for a baby. What a good friend you are!

What a lucky baby and mom -- and to be finished BEFORE the due date is a true accomplishment!

I really do think it is beautiful. As is all the stuff you are working on. However, do you get out much. I think this knitting may be addictive and you are doing way to much of it. It's summer get outside and get some sun and not with that wool sister. Your husband must want to send you to knitter anonomous!!! How could you possibly want to knit sooo much.

It came out beautiful! I'm also knitting this - and knitting and knitting. I love it in white! But i'm doing dusky pink for a girl baby.

Heather said...

Wow..what a fantastic baby blanket!!! I think you should forget the baby and use it as a lap throw!!! :) LOL

Question - I'm at the edging point now, did you slip stitch it to the blanket while knitting the edging - how does one do this? Help?
