below is Lynnette's new baby blanket

I was at my LYS 3 Bags Full in Northbrook visiting yesterday. Lynnette shared her new baby blanket knit with me for the blog. I just love it. It is very simply constructed and looks so lovely. She made it with Blue Sky's alpaca/merino worsted handdye. In Iris. It has a lovely weight, that I can only describe as the weight a new baby would like to feel secure. The softness of this yarn is wonderful too. It will make an incredible gift. Thanks Lynnette!

It's absolutely adorable. I must admit though that I rarely knit baby blankets. I find that most new mothers I know have an abundance of blankets, so I usually just knit a cute sweater.

You know what is funny? I'm knitting the ruffle edge onto the exact same blanket! I went with a different color, but man oh man, I love that Blue Sky Cotton.

Oh, and for a fellow cubs fan...not sure if they will have any left, but if you call Arcadia knitting, they may still have some special edition Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in Cubby Bear. :)
