I have just started this project, the yarn was delivered late yesterday afternoon. I must say that Lion Brand is a super speedy shipper, I had my order in less than 1 week, and I used their standard shipping option.
I am using the "Pound of Love" yarn as per the pattern, and the US size 8, 24" circular needles. This is flying off my needles, I am already close to having 100 stitches of the 207 in the pattern.
This is my first baby blanket, baby anything for that matter. I am still a beginner, having made a simple triangular shawl, some dishcloths, and a garter stitch lap robe before starting this project.
