A finished blanket and hat
I have a few projects that are really close to done and I'm trying to get all of them wrapped up before we leave. The first on the list is this baby blanket.
The pattern is Wrapped In Love
The yarn is Hobby Lobby I Love This Yarn, about 750 yds
Hook size I (5.5mm)
It looks really square right here but it's actually pretty darned wavy. Blocking helped and it will be fine for someone to use but I hate it when blankets aren't square. I really just need to stop doing granny style blankets because mine never seem to work out right.
I do like the yarn though and the blanket is nice and soft. I'm hope the recipient won't be as picky as me.
I also finished another chemo cap. This pattern is the Big Sky Beanie from Knots of Love.
The yarn is Lion Brand Feels Like Butta and I used an I (5.5) hook. I like this patter and will use it again.
I modified it a little and added 2 additional rows of HDC at the end plus a row of crab stitch to give it a nice edge.

The blanket turned out cute. I am sure someone will love it!

The blanket is adorable and will surely be loved by the recipient. Most people aren't that particular about "square" blankets being perfect. Heck, even the ones you buy aren't usually truly square.

I'm sure once the blanket is in use the waviness won't be even noticed. I have to say that I agree with you about granny square projects because I rarely can get them to be flat either.
