The Purl Bee Garter Baby Blanket

When I can knit with wool again, I will finish the baby blanket. The yarn was originally for my Log Cabin blanket.
As you know, there will be no Log Cabin blanket. I think the switch to baby blanket works out just fine.

I am working on the delicious bamboo scarf. I decided to do a stockinette and in the end I'll pull some stitches down
all the way to make a drapey effect.
I realize as I knit this, that it is a goofy way to make a drapey/lacey look. Knitting something you plan to drop out in the end;
however, it prevents me from having YO's and getting lost in lace. In otherwords, it prevents frustration on my part. That is oh so good!

I am posting again later about the dog thoughts I am having. Fair warning, this is the knit post of the day!

I'll talk to you in the comments. :)

The baby blanket is going to be beautiful but how will you ever finish it without wool problems? Do you want someone to finish it for you? Can't wait to see the scarf! I will be back later to see what dog thoughts are going through your mind.

I agree. The blanket looks cozy ;-)
