This gift is long overdue. It sat in my basket for months with only 5 remaining rows to knit. Sweetie tried numerous times to claim it as her own. There were days when I would have gladly relinquished it to her rather than plow through the last 5 rows.
Today I have no regrets. Kudos to Brooklyn Tweed for creating elegance in a simple design. The center panel is knit on the bias giving it a comforting “body hugging” quality and the icord bind off was an absolutely perfect finish. Right now I am anticipating the joy of finally placing this blanket in the hands of a new mother and seeing her smile. For more photos feel free to visit my Ravelry notebook.
