Baby Blanket

I finally finished my first attempt at a baby blanket using the Stitch and Bitch knitting book. I used Malabrigo yarn for this project- cream and purple.

The double color was a little much since it was my first blanket, but I persevered. When I started this project I was in such a different state of mind than I am now. Each stitch includes the journey of my life for the months (yes, months- I kept putting it down to tend to life's other issues) that it took me to finish. I am proud of the finished product- it definitely has some character- perfection is boring.

Now... what to try next? Sweater? Socks? We shall see...
