Wool Leaves Baby Blanket
I've had this blanket on the needles for a long, long time. I'm not sure who I started making it for or even when I cast on. As I was digging through my projects, I decided to tackle this project. I started by ripping everything out and starting over.
I never made a blanket for Molly due to the crippling carpal tunnel I had when I was pregnant with her and I've always felt bad about that. I decided that Chicken Nugget would have a blanket though and this one would belong to her!
Since I have babies in the dead of winter, I need to keep them warm and this blanket is just the thing! It's knit on HUGE needles with doubled yarn and is quite cozy. It was also a quick knit. So quick that when I showed Scott the finished project, he said, "When did you knit that?" I told him while we were watching television over the past week or so.
