Zig and Zag Pram Blanket

It appears that I haven't blogged in a few weeks. Nor did I knit during that time. We had a flood here in Nashville (thankfully our house was not in one of the major flood areas), Ellie started crawling and we've been on a big push to get our school year finished. I did pick the needles back up early this week, though, and managed to finish this work-in-progress called the Zig and Zag Pram Blanket. I loved the pattern as soon as I saw it on Ravelry and I am so pleased with how it turned out. Great use of leftover sock yarn - just be prepared to weave in lots of ends if you decide to knit one for yourself! I did mine as I went, so I wasn't overwhelmed with it at the end.

I knew I wanted mine to be blankie-sized - not a big blanket. I think the finished, blocked measurements came out to be about 22"x28", which was right where I wanted it to be. If you ever knit this, I would highly recommend considering the sock yarn before you use it - I have so many that bled like the dickens when I made socks out of them, so I chose to not use those in this blanket.
