FO Friday

I've finished a couple of things this last week but I haven't managed to get a photo of my socks so we'll go with the baby blanket. On Sunday night I decided I would finish this off for our friends whose baby was due on 1st April. I planned to finish it and send it off today so that it would be there for when the baby was born.

On Tuesday night we got a text to say that the baby had been born. Early babies are something I'm not used to. Both of my two were a fortnight late. As far as I am concerned, you get a due date and the baby is born some time AFTER would seem some babies have other ideas ;)

Luckily I had finished the blanket and just needed to sew the ends in, in the sun.  I did feel a bit silly posting the blanket on what was the hottest day of the year! I hope it cools down a bit so that it can be used!

The pattern is 'Blue Jean Baby' by Kate Heppell and it is a fab pattern. It's a lovely design and I think I will have to make it again. Next time I make it, I think I might add a few more rows on as this isn't as big as I thought it would be but it will be great in the car seat and pushchair....if it is cold enough to use.

There are more lovely Finished Objects over at Tami's blog.

Beautiful blanket! I made a small one for my sister-in-law and they use it all the time on the car seat and in the buggy, and apparently get lots of compliments.

(my son was 10 days early and I still resent losing those days of maternity leave lounging on the sofa!)

How dare that baby come early! I'll bet Momma was happy though. Your blanket is amazing, and I really like the colours.
