Walter’s Moderne Baby Blanket

I am so pleased that the four colors for The Moderne Baby Blanket are working well together. I’m using Swish Worsted in Delft Heather, Copper, Merlot Heather and Camel Heather. I still have lots knitting!

I did enjoy knitting Delilia’s Log Cabin blanket from the same book, Mason Dixon Knitting, but I didn’t enjoy having it being the result of three failed attempts at a regular Moderne Baby Blanket. My inability to pull together four feminine colors that looked good together gave me a huge pile of yarns to use for the Log Cabin.

I just love having such a soothing, garter stitch project at hand. Bob’s youngest son, Jon, is in town for two weeks. Then he will be shipping out to Iraq with a small group of Marines. I don’t think I would be able to knit on a pair of socks for him just now. I need something to distract me from my rather over-active imagination. Once he ships out, I will be able to start a new pair of socks to send to him. <
