I'm really happy with it. I'm not the Worlds best or quickest knitter and considering the last time I did something like this was seven years ago, I don't think it's too bad. It does look a bit wobbly in places, particularly as the stripy squares turned out a slightly different size to the cream ones and I had to pull them just a bit to get them to fit together. Yes I know, those of you who are fab knitters will probably be cringing at that!
But generally I'm very happy with the end result and I don't think it looks too girly which is something I was worrying about despite there being blue and green in the stripes as well as pink. I'm sure either a boy or a girl are going to look at home snuggled up inside it.
I just hope it's going to be big enough to wrap around my new little babe. It measures 55cm x 65cm. In my head I just can't visualise how big this baby might be having had such a teeny tiny prem baby the first time around. I had a scan last week and they estimated baby to be already 5lb5oz. Little F didn't get to that size until he was 2 months old. With potentially 5 more weeks growing time plus the week we've just had I guess this baby could be up to 8lb or a bit more. Little F didn't reach that weight until he was 4 months old and by then he didn't seem like a new born. We'll see. I'm sure the blanket will be snuggly enough and I'm just so pleased to have been able to make it. I really enjoyed the knitting and would like to do more now.
