Circular Baby Blanket/Shawl

I finished knitting the second baby blanket for my nephew's sister on Thursday night. Yesterday I blocked it. Here are the before and after pictures.

Doesn't that make a world of difference? Blocking is a miracle process.

Here's a close-up of the striped border. 

I am thrilled with how this turned out. I can't wait to mail it to my nephew's mom and stepdad. I hope they like it.

My next project is going to be this fabulous Wonder Woman wrap by Carissa Knits. I've downloaded the pattern and ordered the yarn. This is really happening, people. While I'm waiting for the yarn to arrive, I'm going to start some socks for myself. You can't have too many pairs of hand-knit socks, and they're a great summer project since they're small and portable.
