another chevron baby blanket.

IMG_5377

I knit a Purl Soho Chevron Baby Blanket for J as soon as he was born. Once N was born, I had to knit her one too!

I went through my stash to find yarn but unfortunately … I have no pink! I had tons of yellows and a few skeins that needed to be used up – I ran out of one about 2 garter ridges away from being finished so unfortunately there is a colour match in there. Funny though: in real life you can’t see the difference but in the photos it screams at you.

I got smart this time and used stitch markers for the increases and decreases. Different colours for each as I worked across because last time, I made a bunch of mistakes trying to keep count. It was much much faster and I could tune out even more enjoy the project. And now for the gratuitous photos! She’s 7 weeks now.
