I realized on Sunday that my friend's baby shower is about a month away. I put a good week in to knitting that baby blanket when I first started, but was not near finishing it. I found that I can get some solid knitting time in during our daily commute if Chris drives to work. Just yesterday, I added about 6 inches to the blanket. Not too shabby!
Here are some photos of my progress. I'm about three-quarters of the way finished.
This one better shows the seed stitch border and the contrast between the knit and purl stitches.
Right now, I'm in good shape to have this thing finished long before the shower. Maybe I'll even have time to knit up a matching pair of baby booties!
