A Baby Blanket for Julie

A while ago I mentioned that a bunch of friends/co-workers are having babies. There is a group of us at work who usually knit up blankets for our friend's new babies. Well, with layoffs, the knitting group is down to four people, which happens to be the exact number of co-workers having babies. Instead of passing a blanket around and worrying about gauge and seaming, we decided to each do one blanket on our own, but still present them from the group. Originally I was supposed to do Shelley's blanket (she's having a boy, code name "Moose," in August). However, the baby shower for Julie is happening at the end of this month and I said I'd swap with Judith since I had nothing on my needles at the moment. I started this blanket two days ago, and as you can see, it's coming along quite quickly. (Actually, it's much bigger than it looks, but the circular needles are pulling it in). I have about four more color stripes to do, and than I can start binding off. We don't know if Julie is having a boy or girl, hence the neutral colors.

It's so nice to have a knitting group! I envy you! I always stop knitting at the middle or so.. I haven't finished up a whole piece..I really admire your patient and productivity!
