At 1am today!

Pic on my profile. It's not so insipid as it appears. Couldn't get the colours right. It's much more green although still pale.

It's taken me 6 weeks, but have also knitted 2 baby cardigans, a hat and another smaller blanket in between...

OK, what next...?

it's gorgeous!

Oooh it's lovely Ceolas! Did you knit it in strips or individual squares?

I considered doing an apple tree square for dd1's blanket but I got a bit scared of the cabling - I need more practice I think!

Knitted the whole thing in one piece. Hurrah for no sewing up!

The cabling was fine, tbh. The section with the bobbles was a bit tricky as every row is different for about 20 rows of the chart, but I managed to keep my wits about me

How is that gorgeous boy of yours today?

Was the choice of initials for your boys/girls intentional?

Where did you get the pattern?

It's absolutely wonderful

It's in a Rowan book...

It's beautiful- yours looks even nicer than the pattern one!

yes it was Ceolas - well, we chose names we liked but it certainly had an influence! Their initials are CH, EL, CL, EH !

And ds2 is doing fab - a wee bit of jaundice but nothing much. Feeding marathon going on currently.

In one piece - - did you use extra-long needles then? Bet it got heavy towards the end!

Ceolas Fri 27-Jul-07 19:05:30

Oh yes, the feeding marathon. Can't wait!

I just used 33cm bamboos, but they did bend a bit. And yes, very heavy at the end. Especially when doing the bobbles and turning back and forth.

What a beautiful blanket

Gorgeous!! And you must be the speed-knitting champion - it would have taken me years to make all those things.
