12/6/2012 notes: Cast on 129 stitches as most people have said the blanket is a little small with only the original 97 stitches. So far, project is going quickly - super easy to remember and is a good doing-other-stuff-while-knitting knit.

I only recently found out about this little one and then shortly after that found out baby is due in a few days or weeks. Trying to knit as quickly as possible!

12/10/2012 notes: Almost half done now - through skein three!, and I must say that the yarn is awesome for this blanket (super soft, the stitches look even, nice drape). The pattern is easily memorized so I have been able to take this with me and work on it everywhere.

12/14/2012 notes: Little Baby Rhiannon Elizabeth Lydia Witmyer was born and I am 2/3rds done with the blanket. This is the quickest I have ever knit (something this of this size) and am feeling pretty confident that it’ll be done this week. :)

12/21/2012 notes: Complete and sent off - to finish the blanket, I blocked it to get the shape for the most part and then popped it in a delicate cycle for 20 minutes to fluff it up.

a note on yarn color appearance: the top three photos were taken on a window sill in direct sunlight and are the closest to the real-life vibrancy of the green; the others were taken in lamp light, most of them in the evenings so the color looks a bit wonky/faded
