Springtime Baby Blanket

I finally finished my Ravelympics project. Woo Hoo! I originally planned to do two but decided against the other one since things have been so crazy around here. All these sicks children have really stressed me out. I think it's time to take a break.

This is my Springtime Baby Blanket. I knitted it with I Love This Yarn in Orchid. I used a US Size 10 needle to give it a bit a drape....baby blankies should be soft and cuddly. The first photo was taken inside and it's pretty true to color.

This photo wast taken outside and you might need to click it and make it bigger. Yeah, the blanket isn't properly blocked but you can see the design pretty well when you enlarge it. :p
I've put it up for sale on my Dishing Knit Out blog and also on Ravelry for $3.00.

Sick update....Ms Thang had a stomach virus and strep throat...she's feeling much better now and goes back to school tomorrow. Skaterboy has a pretty bad ear infection but is also feeling much better today. He's going back to school tomorrow too. Mama needs some quiet time!! It's impossible to relax when the kids are sick.

Still waiting on my Dish Rag Tag box. I've been tagged already but the box isn't here yet. :( I am so ready to get it knitted and sent back out. I want my team to win this thing!! My team is Phaster Than Phelps.

Hugs!

The blanket is gorgeous! If I have any baby gifts in the future I will have to get the pattern. I also love your new blog look BTW :)

Good luck with the Dish Rag Tag. I opted out this time since too much was going on. Which team are you on? My friend is one of leaders for a group (forgot the name of it). I will be cheering all of you on.

Mel I saw your blanket on Ravelry this morning. Nice job.

So glad the kids are feeling good enough to go back to school. I agree mama needs some rest time.

I haven't been tagged yet on my team, but watch out for the sweet sixteens, we are determined to be team number one, lol

Your blanket is beautiful and congratulations on finishing it. That's a big project for so little time despite all your diversions. Glad your kiddos are feeling better and will to back to school. It's bad enough having one sick, but two is much much worse. Take care and happy knitting :)

How beautiful! That blanket is just wonderful.

Glad your ankle biters are doing better. Don't you hate it when your kids are sick?
