FO: Baby Blanket (Lost in the Mail :-()

Friends of ours who had moved back to Australia had a little darling girl in March. And since I knew that they were expecting back in September I started knitting a baby blanket for them.

N+FS 1Because they live in Australia I decided on cotton and I chose DROPS Muskat, which has a lovely shine to it. They didn’t know that they were having a girl, so I decided on a bright and colourful blanket. N+FS 2I had even  more colours to pick from, but I’m actually really pleased with the end result, the colours just work really well together. N+FS 3As you can see I stuck to a straightforward garter stitch, which made this blanket a relatively easy and quick knit, although I did take my time as I had some Christmas knitting to do in between starting and finishing it. N+FS 6And of course I added my lovely logo that I ordered from a lady in France. N+FS 7Here’s the finished blanket that I sent on its way once I heard that my friends daughter had been born. However, not having heard anything I recently checked with my friend and it turns out that they had moved and even though they had a redirection from their previous address any parcels they were expecting didn’t make it to their new place.

So, it looks like this rather lovely blanket has been lost :-(.
