Baby Blanket

How late is too late for a baby blanket? Should they still technically be a baby, or should you just aim for sometime before college?


IMG_1401My second child was born with no baby blanket to speak of. My first was adorned with quite a few– I think we all know the difference between first and second pregnancies!

My goal, as my son turns 2, is to make him a baby blanket. It’s all done in garter stitch so it’s a bit bland of a knit, but you get to do yarn overs every row to increase stitches, so it’s only mildly stale. (I’m actually a lot further than this, but I’m already kind of tired of it– you’re supposed to have 184 stitches before you can start decreasing, and I just counted 78.)
