The project that gave me nightmares is finished. In fact, it is finished and gifted! I spent the weekend in Connecticut with my pregnant daughter attending her baby shower. The project, a knitted baby blanket, is from a [tag]Leisure Arts[/tag] leaflet titled KnitOne for Baby.

This blanket was worked on every chance I had; work, doctor appointments, even a six hour train trip to Chicago! The pattern is a simple one involving slipped stitches and yarn overs, but concentration was key as there was mega counting of stitches.

My daughter loved it and I think I did a good job too, at least in the pictures my knit stitches look uniform. I used [tag]Caron Simply Soft[/tag] 100% Acrylic yarn to make it easy care for the new mother.
In addition to the blanket and baby clothes, I included another hobby of mine, machine embroidered baby bibs. I have been one busy grandma!!!
