Big and Bad Again!

I think this is the fifth time I've knit the Big Bad Baby Blanket from Debbie Stoller's Stitch and Bitch, and it's a testament to how far I've as a knitter when I compare this latest blanket to my first one, knit years ago, whose end result was an absolute mess. This latest blanket is also significant for a number of other reasons, not least of which is that it's the first time I've ever knit a blanket for a baby I knew would be a girl, and while the colour I chose is not particularly girlish, it was certainly fun to knit in a pinkish hue. And finally, the blanket is especially significant, because it was knit for my best friend's daughter who is due to enter the world in a couple of weeks from now, around Harriet's 3rd birthday. We're all very happy, and I don't think I've ever been more excited ever about a pregnancy that wasn't my own.
