Baby's and knitting just seem to go together. There is nothing like a new baby on the way to inspire one to buy yarn and break out the needles (like we need any inspiration!) Awhile ago I started the Big Bad Baby Blanket pattern from Stitch and Bitch just because I liked it. I knew that somewhere along the way there would be the perfect baby to cherish it. It has been a bit of a start and stop project but I have recently found out that a friend is expecting her third child, a baby boy, in the end of December. So I have "dusted it off" and am reinvigorated to finish it. I really love knitting it. It slides so beautifully on the needles. I'm using Lorna's Laces superwash wool so it can be thrown in the washer and dryer (or so the label says . . . .) I'm just over half way done so I'm hopeful that it will be done in time although it has taken me quite awhile to get to this point. Now the question is whether or not I can give it away! I may just have to make a second one for myself.
