Pattern # 358: Gingham Blanket
You are probably very confused right now. I bet you are wondering why there is a baby blanket pattern posted on Christmas Eve. Well, I just really wanted to make this for a friend's kid, so I put it on the calendar for today (because it was empty) and I'm anal and don't want to switch things up! hahaha But I guess you could make this in reds and greens and call it Christmassy! I am probably stressing about Christmas Eve dinner right now, which is why I pre-posted this on Tuesday. muahahaha the powers of blogger. Wow. I think I need more sleep. Anywho, it's my first year hosting and I am very excited. I have been trying to do a lot of prep work before, but we will see how well I did!
Do yourself a favor and check out the Rav link for this project. The versions that people made are amazing!!
Updated 2/14/2011 - I finished this up over the weekend. I started it in December and worked on it slowly (with lots of other projects in between). Very happy with the finished product. I actually decreased the size by 2 rows & 2 columns, effectively cutting the amount of squares needed in half. Then I used a larger hook. Brilliant, I know. :) Very happy with the final product. I do want better pictures though. And maybe some with precious baby Alina on it. I LOVE the edging!
