Baby Bundle Blanket

I finished the cardi for the Baby Bundle yesturday morning, but you will have to wait until tomorrow for that picture.  The button is so cute.

I attempted 3 times to do the blanket with the pattern I wanted to use and each time it wouldn't lie flat, it kept pulling tight like it was pleated and I couldn't afford to try and see if with blocking it would be flat, so I resigned myself to the fact that, the pattern will have to be put on hold for something else when I have more time.

I decided as I was in the swing of the ripple pattern, that I would do another one!  But was determined that it needs to grow quickly so I chained 98 with 3 turning.  Last night between cooking dinner, and going to parents night I managed to do 10 rows.  My goal today is to do 16 more rows,  I will then carry on tomorrow and Saturday morning, leaving Saturday afternoon and night for the border.    And that will be it.  Sunday sewing in all the ends.  And it can be handed over.

Thanks for all the comments and it was agreed that flowers would look cute, but again am frantic that I'm not going to have enough time.  One comment said thread ribbon.  PERFECT!  Quick and will look so cute.  I have thin white ribbon so that will be it.  I will attempt to do this today so you can see tomorrow.


  1. Thread ribbon sounds like it'll be super cute too *smiles* or, cute buttons could work as well. Love the look of the ripple blanket :)

  2. Can't wait to see it when it's all finished! :D

  3. The sneek peek looks great! Can't wait to see it all finished!

  4. Yes I agree with Sam, sneek peek looks great, love the colours.

  5. Wow 10 rows in a night is impressive! I usually get RSI pain way before that :-) I love the minty colours, very cute!

  6. Such pretty colours. Can't wait to see the finished blanket.

  7. SO sweet. You're doing a lovely job.
