This is a gift for a friend that is having a baby boy. The shower is in a week or so and I wanted to do something fast but oh so great! I used the knitting machine with the 3.5plate to knit the body of the blanket using 4 balls of Cottonease in charcoal. Then I picked up sts using Cottonease in stone from the live cast on and live take off of the machine plus the sides for a mitered garter border. I don’t know how big I will make the border but I will go until I think it’s good.
