More Baby Blankets

I have a couple of knitting projects going all the time--sweaters for Knit for Kids, and baby blankets for some local charities. I started out crocheting the baby blankets...
but now am using them as a way to practice new lace knitting patterns, many from the book A Treasury of Knitting Patterns, by Barbara Walker. This means that with the more complicated pattern repeats I need to be alone in a quiet room with no interruptions, muttering to myself as I knit.

Lucky for me, the little newborns don't mind a few mistakes, such as the rather obvious one marching across the width of this blue and yellow blanket.

Your baby blankets are beautiful! And thanks for sending me Judith's address. I've emailed her.
