Snugly things

My Lion brand cable knit throw is finished. After seeing the one that Leslie made, I just had to give it a try. The pattern is so easy, and quick!

I had purchased an extra ball of yarn, and made Addison a matching wake up gift for this morning.

He loved the hat, and the blanket and was very excited to do a photo shoot with me.


I had every intention of keeping the blanket in the living room so I could snuggle up in it at night, but the plans have changed.





"Mama, this blankie is so warm and snugly, how did you knit this so good? I just love this. Is it for me? It is so beautiful, how did you do this?"


So he is sleeping with it now, of course the blankie is his.

Wow, I usually don't knit big projects because they take sooooo long and I get bored, but that one looks like it may have gone pretty quickly! What size needle did you use? I'm totally digging it!

That blanket is adorable, almost as adorable as your little one wrapped up in it with his hat on. Precious! So talented.
