baby's first knit.

As you can imagine, I was very anxious to find out what we were having, for many reasons. Mostly for me so I could finally pick out yarn colors and start on baby projects. A couple days after the ultrasound, my sister and I went to the yarn store to pick out colors to start on a chevron blanket together. Made of the softest organic cotton by blue sky alpacas, this yarn has a great color palette to choose from to make this old-fashioned pattern feel modern.

It was a thrill to get my sister back into knitting, we learned together over 10 years ago and I kept at it while she didn't catch the bug. I'm hoping this will ignite a spark in her yet. There has to be a knitting gene in our DNA somewhere we share. I finished this while we were home for Christmas, and her pace is a bit slower, but I can't wait to see it. Her colors for her baby girl are gorgeous.

  1. Looks amazing! I wish I could knit like you. I am having a hard time following a pattern that has anything other than knit and purl. :)

    1. This pattern is really simple! My sister only knew how to do a basic knit and purl, and was able to do it, even after having to relearn knitting after so many years.

  9. Such a beautiful blanket..love the colors! I found the pattern on Purl Soho and have been eyeing it to make for my soon to be newborn. Do you mind if I ask the names of the colors you chose? If you don't mind a copycat I'd love to do the same!
