I finally started the heart blanket that I've been wanting to knit for baby. There's only one problem now...I can't stop knitting it!! I guess that's a good thing though, it's going to be done nice and quick. The original pattern was six blocks wide, but I wanted a slightly smaller blanket for going over the car seat, so Rhonda cut the pattern down for me and it will be 4 blocks wide instead and I'll probably do 5 blocks up. I'm really happy with it so far and I'm loving the pattern. Rhonda was so kind as to chart it out for me and I've been using the chart exclusively and haven't even looked at the actual pattern.
Pattern: Heart Blanket by Carole Prior
Needles: 4.5mm (although I could have probably went up a size)
Yarn: Pingouin Pingostar (Rhonda had this in her stash and gave me this yarn for the blanket)
