Heaven in a Blanket

Taking care of newborn twins is not hard. In fact, my boys are model citizens - they are completely sweet and not fussy at all. I got very lucky. Taking care of newborn twins is, however, very time consuming. It really requires a lot of patience and nothing gets done quickly. I finally have a few minutes to sneak this blog post in and I am just a little bit tired so this is going to be a quick one.

I finished the second baby blanket just in time for the twins to be born. I was working on it right up until I went to the hospital.

Pattern: Heavenly Baby Blanket by Joyce Nordstrom
Yarn: Quince and Co. Chickadee in Chanterelle
Needles: size US 5

This blanket was knit for Hayden (Baby B). I really loved the combination of the cables and the lace on this one and because this did have lace panels I chose a boyish color in my go-to yarn: Quince and Co. Chickadee (which is the same yarn I knit the other baby blanket out of.) This pattern was easy to memorize and fun to knit and I completely love the end result. I think Hayden does too!
