Sunburst, Baby Blanket

This blanket has been in the planing for a while. Then the Baby’s Mom called to say the shower will be in the end of that week and I started knitting as fast as I could, finishing one hour before the shower…

The blanket is double knitted, see the other side below. Originally I planned to make it into a pattern, but it will need a lot of polishing before I can do that, and I think I will just leave it at that. The name ‘Sunburst’ was given by the Baby’s aunt, and I like it a lot.

The theme of simplicity ans child like naivety is continuing in my art, and strongly. Recently I am working on baby blankets, and there are so many patterns I want to do, that I don’t want to take the time out to sleep or eat (or refine the instructions so I can put them up). They are so simple to do, that I truly hope some beginners will try them too.

Another amazing thing about these patterns is that the same chart can be made into a Baby blanket (top picture, 30″x32″, needles #15US/9mm ), or a stroller blanket (see pastel version, 20″x23″, needles #7US).

There is something about Baby blankets that just tugs on the heart strings. They are like prayers shawls – as we put our best wishes in for the baby, and take so much care that the yarn will be soft and that there will be no knots in it.
