3 weeks


Ava is three weeks old today and I am already amazed at how quickly time is passing. 
This is a blanket I knitted at the end of the pregnancy, waiting for her and watching Dexter. Nothing like serial killers and heavy gauge knitting needles to occupy a brain.
Babies are much easier to photograph when sleeping. Less fist-pumping and growly faces.

your baby and blanket is divine. do you mind me asking what yarn you were using? And what size needles? I'm almost finished a baby blanket for my second little one but I'm thinking a quick knit will be in order for my last trimester.

Thanks Jodi! The yarn I used is from Blue Sky
( http://www.purlsoho.com/purl/products/item/4177-Blue-Sky-Bulky ).
I don't know what the gauge is for the needles, but they were really big. It does make for a quick knit and a very heavy blanket. The yarn does shed a lot though but over time it has settled down. Good luck and congratulations!
