It took months of garter stitch and hours of dread, but I finally finished the Hudson Bay Inspired Baby Blanket the day before my friend’s baby shower. I started this project back in September and blogged about it before here. The pattern was super easy – just knit, knit, knit, and more knit. If I ever make this blanket it again (and honestly, I have vowed to never make another baby blanket again because of this blanket) I will use a bulky weight yarn and/or cast on fewer stitches.
The mother-to-be loved the blanket, and it did come out beautifully. My husband wants me to make this blanket again when we have a baby, which is why even though I’ve vowed to never make another baby blanket, I might just have to.
A note about the yarns. I loved Patons Classic Wool yarn and will definitely use it again! The only downside in using it for a baby blanket is that it’s 100% wool and therefore not machine washable. As for the Sheep(ish) yarns, I loved the colors but hated the yarns! The yarns will not tightly spun and my needles kept going in between the fibers.
