A younger friend of ours let us know she was having a baby girl.
She wanted a lacy, pretty baby blanket in pale yellow.
Dogwood by Tin Can Knits seemed just right and I had wanted to knit it anyway.
It is knit in blocks from the center out.
After I knit the blocks and blocked them to shape, I decided that I wasn't going to sew them together.
I tried several knitting patterns and settled on this one - a lacy little bit to knit the two blocks together.
Knitting together was pretty quick and easy.
Then I had to figure out the edging.
I used pretty much the same pattern around the outside for the edging.
And the baby blanket was finished and delivered before the baby arrived!
