I made this for my son before he was born but then he never used it, it never seemed practical, but I like it and it's still sort of special to me.



It's all made with a zig-zaggy lacy stitch that I have to figure out all over again each time I use it.

Beautiful!  I love that lacy zig zag you used.
I made a pink blanket while pregnant with my first son (had 4 sons, never used it LOL).  I saved it and gave it to my first son (22 years later) when he and his wife had their first baby, who just happened to be a girl.  It was used again when the second (another girl) came along.

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.

oh that is so beautiful!

if you don't mind me asking, what pattern did you use for that?  I need to make a special blanket for a friend and something like that would be perfect!

That would be a beautiful blanket for specal occasions, like a christening. Its a lovely keepsake. 

I love knit blankets for babies, when I had my son I had two chennille blankets that I used constantly, they were so soft, and knit blankets just wrap so nicely around a baby, not too tight, but not too loose either...

I like to do personal swaps now and again.

I knit, crochet, and make stitch markers.

Just pm me if you wanna swap. Smiley

Oh pretty,pretty!  What a beautiful pattern.  I agree with Cougar.  You should save it for your first grandchild.  I know it seems far off, but believe me, time goes by faster then you think.

I care for my 2 year old grandson every day and he cuddles under one of his mother's baby blankets that I made her.  Before he was born I used it as a lap afghan and before that my granddaughter used it.  I don't know what yarn I used but it wears like iron.  This blanket gets washed at least twice a week and it looks like new.  It never piles or shrinks.  Magic I tell ya!!

I don't mind you asking about a pattern at all, but I didn't use a pattern, I just worked it, so I'm not sure I can help too much. I knew the stitch already although I do have to think about it all over again every time. It's basically about making the hole, and the two holes are made differently on the two sides. I think on one side you pass the thread over the needle to make the hole and then you work two stitches and pass one stitch over the other, and on the other side you work two stitches together and then pass the thread over the needle to make the hole. Sorry that's not too helpful...
