When Aunty Cake and M were married, I promised them a handknit blanket (queen size) for their bed.
Um, yeah. It never happened.
But, when The Captain came along, I knew I could make a blanket for him. The log cabin style blanket is perfect because it can be added to, if wanted, when the baby gets bigger. I made one for Rabbit and love it. For The Captain, I used most of the same Blue Sky Alpaca Dyed Cotton yarns, plus a few new colors, on size 10.5 needles.
I mostly finished it. Aunty Cake had to weave in about 20 ends. Argh.
