Baby's knitted blanket

Oh my God I finally finished it! I started knitting this blanket more than a month ago...I knit slowly on and off...after a while it felt like it's never going to be finished...i started to wonder if i'm gonna have to knit like a maniac while in labour just so i could have Baby wrapped in it as soon as she comes...

I used up 7 balls of yarn...it's really soft and cuddly..when this picture was taken I haven't washed and blocked it yet...it was narrow and thick especially because of the cable pattern..when blocking it I stretched it a bit width-wise so it's thinner and wider now..just the perfect size..

This blanket goes straight into my hospital bag...just can't wait to have Baby rolling around in this...

You really are sooooooooooooo amazingly crafty! Baru belajar knit and your blanket looks like the one I bought from Mamas & Papas for my girls. Well done you! I'm sure your little one will look ever so cute all bundled up in mummy's custom blanket especially with the weather we're having at the moment.

wah cantiknyer... i'm also expecting my third one, and i have been visiting your blog religously just to see what's ur latest project for the baby... i have many cellular blankets but i feel like having one (though mmg tak relevan sgtlah kat msia nih kan) of the knitted one. Ermm... tapi nak sgt2 buat quilt for the baby, mmg useful, i bought mamas and papas one for my eldest, she's still using it till now, she's 6 yo, and the quilt that i bought last time was the cotbed size... cuma very soon she'll outgrow it... oh aida... i wish... i wish...

aida, where did u get the pattern for it? i've been meaning to make one for my dot for ages! she loves to haul her blanky around but even the baby sized ones are too big for her so it'll drag along the floor and cepat kotor T_T.
i was thinking i'd make one for her in a slightly Dayana-frenly size, but until now i'm not sure where to start. huhu.

aida,

the blanket is gorgeous...u r really one talented lady... :)

btw, i sewed 6 bags, 3 nursing covers, cloth pantiliners and 1 is still in the process...it's a 'sophia bag' by amy butler. will email u the pic once i finish making it.

p/s: do u have fb acc?

E`n1x said...
