baby blanket completed. next time i should remember the correct due date so i don’t give myself carpal tunnel.

i followed the pattern for the fluffy brioche baby blanket from purl bee but made it approximately a 35 inch square by casting on 122 stitches with the cascade 128 yarn. while i loved knitting with the cascade 128, it’s a pain to wash. the packaging says that it’s a superwash so i should be able to wash and dry in the machine but the reviews i found (and my own experience) seems to indicate otherwise. i ended up hand washing it in warm water, threw it in the dryer on low for 15 min, then laid flat to dry. it still got fuzzy though and lost it’s shape a bit, but at least it’s still very soft and cuddly. hopefully it holds up over time.
