Finished Friday: Diagonal Comfort Blanket

DSCN5181

This is my second knit  Diagonal Comfort Blanket. The first I knit in an aqua/teal  for my soon to be born baby girl. This blanket with the stripe color changes I made for a friend whom is due in late June. I am pretty tickled on how well the blanket came out. Finished the blanket is about 30×30. It took me about two months off an on of knitting.  You can find the free pattern on Ravelry here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/diagonal-comfort-blanket

I’m knitting a few of these up for my baby girl! Less than five weeks and she should be here to start wearing them. I found the   “Spring” Baby Headband by Amy Andersen pattern on Ravelery and love that it can be adjusted to a number of sizes.
