My son is 3 months old now and I just finally finished knitting his baby blanket. I think I started it when I was 6 months pregnant with him, so it’s taken me nearly 6 months! But that was only because I knit about 2-3 rows each time I picked it up 🙂 I chose alpaca wool because it is extra soft, almost like chinchilla fur.
There is a 10 row border of stitches opposite to the interior. I also inset an “L” for the first letter of his name. It lays right on his little bum when he naps on his tummy.
