Geez...Why Does She Always Ask So Many Questions!?!

I whipped up a quick project yesterday. It's a baby blanket for a co-worker who's expecting at the end of November.

I used 4 skeins of Sirdar Snuggly DK in a pretty sage green. I doubled the strands and double crocheted the whole thing.

Here's my question---

Do you think that 19" by 29" is big enough for a baby blanket?

I have 2 more balls of this yarn, but they're in a fairly sad, tangled state.

I know that acrylic doesn't really block, so these are pretty much the measurements I'm going to end up with.

Let me know what you all think. Thanks in advance!

I think it's a good size. Before you know it the baby will be a toddler and will be dragging it around. It's a good size for blanket dragging...ask me how I know this...hehehehe

I agree - I think that's a great size! My son's blankie is that size and I try to keep that in mind when knitting baby blankets for others. Plus, it's just a nice size for using when you're out and about...in the stroller, over the carseat/carrier, that sort of thing. It looks great!

I think that it is fine. It would be a great swaddling blanket. Great job! You were busy yesterday!

Can't believe how fast you're knitting! ;) Yep, I agree with the others, it's certainly a good size!

It's a great size -- I tend to knit mine so that they're "carseat" blankets. It's so interesting to me that "whip it up fast" usually equates to crochet.

Thanks guys! I think I'll keep it that size.
