Snowflake

Snowflake
Western Region Oddball Baby Blanket
started December 2013
Didn't I just say the Oddball group doesn't knit many all-white blankets, yet this is the second one on which I've knit in the last two weeks.

The cast-on edge is taped down to get a good photo of the stitch pattern used in first section. I used the Box Stitch on my four-inch section and sent the blanket on to Sara in Nebraska. 

Gladly, no actual snowflakes fell while this blanket was in my possession.

  5. Such a pretty and delicate looking blanket. I am always afraid to knit with white - it's like I will doom it to being dirty before I even finish it.

    In answer to your question - I like both circular and DPNs for knitting socks. I lean towards the circulars because it's more difficult to lose stitches!

  10. I love it! It inspires me to dig out the "antique white" blanket that is almost finished. I need to motivate myself with a baby count-down chart... for the two on the board in the League, for the best friend due again this summer, and for Wondervet's twin GIRLS due in the spring too. Whew. (And I suspect local vet is pregnant as well, but it should be safer to ask/more obvious when Gg goes next month for her annual exam.)
