Here is my latest knitting project. I am knitting the Heart Baby Blanket that I found on Ravelry, but the pattern is free on the internet at Knitting on the Net.
Does the yarn look familiar? It should. It's the same Classic Elite Provence yarn that I used for the Provence Throw that I finished in December. I think I had about 8 skeins still sitting in my stash. So when I found out on Saturday that a daughter of a friend of mine recently had a baby boy (first grandson of the family), I thought knitting a baby blanket in this yarn was going to be perfect (plus I am stash busting).
This was my knitting project on Sunday. By the end of day, I had completed 13" on the blanket. I have been working on it all week and right now I have completed five rows of hearts.
I'm not sure how long I am going to make it. The pattern says knit until desired length. I think I'll shoot for 40", but we'll see what happens. I am almost at the end of my third skein of yarn and it's not long enough yet for my liking. I am getting roughly two rows of hearts, including the 8 rows of garter stitch in between, per skein. I'll see where it stands at the end of the fourth skein.
