Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God. Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
Phil 4:6-7

Yarning Along -- Baby Blanket

It's been a long time since I participated in a Yarn Along, but since I'm back to blogging I figure go whole hog or no hog at all!

This is the baby blanket I referred to in my Daybook yesterday. My brother commissioned it last week, I ordered the yarn from KnitPicks and it arrived Thursday (their distribution center is just across town!). 

It's a blanket for a baby shower -- a gift from my sister-in-law and niece who are out of town and won't be able to attend the shower this weekend.

This pattern has become a favorite -- I've now made five or six of them in a variety of colors. This one is made with KnitPicks Comfy Worsted in white, blackberry, and flamingo pink, obviously for a girl. The blackberry looks rather brown in the photo, but it's a deep purple. I'm almost finished -- maybe six more stripes. I will hopefully finish it by tomorrow and block it Friday. A fresh knit!

I just reserved You Are All Welcome Here by Elizabeth Berg from the online library, so hopefully I will finish it after all.

Hook up with Ginny for more knitting projects and good reads.


  1. So pretty! I love the pattern- how it looks where you change colors. Lovely!

  2. I really like this blanket! The colors are perfect. I want to make a blanket for a friend who is due in the spring. I may use this pattern!

    1. The blackberry was pretty dark. It looks pretty in the sun, but indoors it looks a little brown. I was just a little disappointed (because KnitPicks recommended them together). That's the problem with buying yarn online. The mama-to-be liked it though.


I appreciate your comments -- sometimes I feel like I'm talking to myself!
