So my current work in progress on the knitting front is for my dear friend Jen who is expecting her second child and first girl this fall! Most of my friends are having boys which is great and all but handmade gifts seem to be better for girls. I am getting an early start so that I can make lots and lots of cute stuff for this future cutie!
When I found this pattern on the blog Knit 1 LA I fell in love because is was so pretty, so simple and a very manageable size. My mother and I typically make bigger blankets for babies and they just take forever. My sister recently showed us a beautiful leaf patterned one she knitted that was just big enough to wrap around the baby. That little sis is pretty smart some times!

Here is my WIP:
A few more lunch hours and episodes of "Hatfields and McCoys" and this little blanket will be all set.
The next thing to decide is the edge...should I go green or possibly brown or cream? Maybe I should ask the Momma to be....Jen what do you think?
