The blanket was my second lace pattern, a much easier experience than knitting the Forest Canopy Shawl. For one thing, there are no increases and, therefore, no infernal counting of stitches to make sure I hadn't screwed up.
This one took a bit longer to get finished, since I've been zipping from Germany to the SF Bay Area and North Carolina. I delivered the blanket yesterday - hopefully it'll be big enough! The baby is already 8 lbs and not due for another three weeks! Labor induction is in order, I think, if the baby doesn't come very soon. Maybe while we're here! Since I've never been around for all the hustle and bustle of a birth before that would be pretty exciting.
