Please describe and tell us about your baby blanket.

Its a knitted star, made for my daughter. I found lots of patterns for crocheted stars, but I cant do anything besides a single and double crochete so those patterns were quickly eliminated.

What yarn and needles did you use and where did you get them? Why did you pick this yarn?
I used Lion Brand Baby soft 5 sz6 dpn, 16", 24, & 36" sz 6 circular needles. The needles were a mixture of ones i already owned and ones i have to order from I picked the yarn for its color

Tell us more about your design. Was it inspired by another pattern? Why did you pick those colors?
I have always loved stars, and it seemed like such a better idea then the standard square. I picked the colors cause they are still slightly gender neutral.

Did you run into any problems when knitting your baby blanket? How long did it take you to knit?I ran into the issue of trying to find a smaller circular needles to work on between the dpn and the standard 24" circular thankfully has everything and the needles were here in less the 36 hours after i ordered them.

the whole blank took me about 4 weeks of non-stop finger crippling knitting.

Anything else you'd like to share about your baby blanket or knitting in general?
I am just very proud of how it turned out.
