A Blanket and A Book

I finished the baby blanket for my friend/coworker! I elected to do only one border instead of the two color border suggested by the pattern. I think it's busy enough without it and my hands thank me for that decision.
Here is a closeup of the garter stitch border.
And as my reward, I bought this book. It has some beautiful projects that I can't wait to start. It may be even better than her first book!

If you haven't seen it, check it out at here!


  1. That is the absolute cutest baby blanket!

    The book does look tempting. I may have a moratorium on buying yarn ... but I never said anything about books!

  2. The blanket is absolutely adorable! Nicely done.

  3. Yes, I agree that the single color border works better than two. It's simpler and less busy. Nice that your hands can get arest, too>

    Isn't that cover hat the cutest thing?

  4. I love the blanket - and I think your border is perfect :)
