ram--BLINNN

This "Ramblin' Rows" baby blanket is for my neighbors whose first child will be born at the end of August. Since we know they will be blessed with a precious daughter, pink is the main color of this blanket. Making this, my first Ramblin' Rows, is such fun! I enjoy the color changes and the variety of shapes. It consists of rectangles, large squares, and small squares in garter stitch. Since I'm not a fan of garter, I thought once or thrice about making this pattern. However, it is amazing what a few well placed decreases can do!



This view shows the detail a little better along with the five colors. I am using worsted weight yarn and size eight needles. If you're interested in the pattern, Google Ramblin Rows to locate a place where you can order it. The booklet includes sizes for a lapghan and a full size afghan in addition to the baby ghan.


O Lord, you have searched me and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue you know it completely, O Lord. You hem me in-- behind and before; you have laid your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain. ---Psalm 139:1-6

Thank you. I am pleased with the way the colors are fitting together. I never really know until I actually see it "growing".
