Barnraising

I'm having a lot of fun with the barn raising blanket. But not as much fun as I'm having with little miss Naomi... she's over 7 weeks old now, and growing like you wouldn't believe! She's also started smiling and babbling -- I think we have a chatty little soul here :o)

Naomi and the blankie squares

For the barn raising blanket I've been using Pagewood Farms sock bites (mill ends that are sold at my local yarn store) and scraps of sock yarn from my stash. I've also swapped a couple of squares with local knitty friends.

Barn raising... I'm obsessed!

I'm really liking the color combinations so far and enjoying arranging the squares to see how I'll want the final placement.

Another great simple project!

I love how your blanket is turning out!! I think Naomi is getting bigger, but I can't believe how small she looks next to the squares :)
