Baby Moderne Finished 2
Overall I am a fan of the finished blankie, although it has not yet hit the wash. I might be more gentle with that this time around as I have had surprises with the Swish yarn in the past. I made a few mistakes when begining the intarsia technique, but I didn't notice until I was too far past them to care any more. I just couldn't bear to reknit that much garter stitch. It is not THAT obvious
Another mistakeOOps!
Towards the end I definitly wanted to be done with this blanket!! I didn't expect it to take me 5 months to complete, but I did reach my goal of finishing it before going back to work! I even had a week to spare.

Hopefully with my return to work I will be able to make progress on the Cables and O's Cardigan once again!

  2. Congrats on finishing! It looks fantastic and no one will ever notice those little hiccups in the intarsia. I hope Eleni drags it around while sucking her thumb for years to come!
