My brother and sister-in-law are expecting the first baby in our family on July 10, 2011! As soon as I found out I was going to be an aunt, I went searching for the perfect baby blanket for my new love. I finished the border by candlelight this weekend as the electricity was out for 13 hours at my parent's house the night/morning before the shower. Darren says one day I can tell him "Back when I made this for you...I had to knit by candlelight" Here's the pattern for the Baby Tree of Life Afghan.
The upside? I chose a super-wash wool that is machine wash and machine dry. No worries for Momma here!
