Baby Isaac has now been gifted his blanket and whilst I do not know his feelings on it I do know that his mummy and daddy loved it.
I used Knit Picks Shine Sport in the colour Sky. The yarn is an absolute delight to knit with and furthermore is completely machine washable as well as tumble dryable. I find it a good yarn to use for baby items where the parent wants natural fibres but ease of washing.
The pattern is Floralized by Cheri McEwan, which was the summer MKAL in 2014 and is a free pattern. I must admit that the finished blanket looks much harder than it is to knit. Cheri always creates wonderful designs which seem to flow off the needles with ease yet look stunning and complicated.
I am so chuffed with this project, here are some more photos.
