Umaro is getting bigger and bigger by the day (not unlike a certain baby MiH) - which is very good news, but makes it hard to move it now (and no it is not because of my growing bump - it is all down to the weight of the blanket, really). Just as well that I need a blanket to watch TV now that cold temperatures are hitting us.
I love the knitted pattern. How beautiful are the curves and diamond shapes! Just very clever, and much easier than the end result might suggest.
I think I am now half way there, so a fairly fast knit considering it is a blanket. Slowly getting worried about the blocking phase, not sure where to do this yet. Oh well, I am sure Mr MiH will not mind me covering all the surfaces in the house with projects if they are that beautiful.
