Diva Baby Blanket

So…progress has been made. See this big blob? It is the body of the blanket with all stitches around the outside picked up and knit to begin the border.

Here is where knitpicks options are worth their weight in gold…the directions tell me to put all the border stitches on a scrap piece of yarn and then knit them in as I knit the border. I don’t have to, because I have them all on my largest 60 inch options cable with a stitch holder at one end. Then I can use the other end to knit with while I make the border. It is very helpful!

Let’s take a closer look at the border

Looks pretty nice so far, I am more pleased with the result than I thought I would be!
