I keep forgetting!

To post this! I finished up the baby blanket I began before I knew our baby was a 'she'. The blanket matches the bugaboo and has an 'O' in the center (our last name begins with O). It's a super soft, machine washable merino wool. I'm tempted to use it as a lap blanket before our baby comes, but just as I decided not to use the diaper bag as a knitting bag until she comes, I'm saving the good stuff for her arrival.

Gorgeous blanket! Man, I should have had you knit stuff for Joaquin while I was PG -I just could never get myself organized. Way to go!

ha ha, lu-lu! I couldn't recoup my $ if I sold them... you're looking at $100 in yarn in that blanket! I do it for the love of the craft and knowing it's for my baby :)

;) I didn't want to go with lesser yarn because this stuff was so practical (machine washable merino wool) and felt SO good!
