Celtic Baby Blanket

I finished (and gifted) my Celtic Baby Blanket back in July, but I never posted the finished product. To refresh your memory, it's a totally reversible baby blanket that I made out of Knitpicks Swish Superwash in color Dublin. Here it is!

I worked the blanket out from the center in a seed stitch-like pattern, then added the border to the live stitches.

Here's a close-up of the mitered corner. It's not perfect, but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

It looks great on my rocking chair too! I want one!

And finally, proof that it really is reversible, cables and all.

This blanket took 15 balls of yarn and way too much time to knit, but I'm really happy with the result. The hardest part of the project was grafting the border stitches together at the end. I think I finally learned how to graft, beyond just following the directions for stockinette stitch grafting.
