Hey all!

I wanted to share my newest FO, which is also a design of my own creation: Jack's Beanstalk Blanket.

The blanket was designed and knit for my new baby nephew, Jack, who was welcomed into the world in early December. I finished casting off the blanket only an hour before I got the phone call announcing his birth!

Here's a gross yellowish photo of the unblocked blanket. (Thumbnails lead to big image)

And here's the finished product:

Knit with Patons Classic Wool Merino in a deep foresty green.

The pattern is simple, consisting of three Vandyke lace columns and a seed stitch border.

It's one of the biggest projects I've done, and I'm very proud of it.

The pattern will be available soon, and I'll be sure to post it here!

It looks nice and snuggly.

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

Love it! What are the dimensions? I love the idea of making an afghan, but it seems like it would take forever and get boring. A baby blanket, on the other hand, might be just my speed. Kudos, it's awesome!

That IS fresh to death.

Oh wow! This is sooooooo pretty Cheesy

Did you ever happen to write up a pattern for this? I have a few expecting relatives and this is one of the nicest knitted baby blankets I have come across so far  Smiley

you dont have nerve enough to be homosexual,
the least you can do is go into the arts.
