Quadrature for Smaug

The mysterious blue ball of yarn in yesterday's photo?  It's part of this:

The pattern is Quadrature for Korrigan and I knit it in Cascade 220 Superwash in Sapphire Heather.  I used size 7's (4.5mm) and used 4 skeins (3 + a few yards of the fourth to complete the bind off) of yarn.  It's just under 36 inches square so it should work well for a car seat blanket, a stroller blanket or any of the thousands of other times you need a blanket on a baby that isn't huge.  This is for a friend who is actually a beginning knitter - my Mom and I taught her to knit.  Yes, the baby is a boy.  I didn't want to blog it in progress because even though she doesn't read the blog regularly, I didn't want to chance it.  Her baby shower is tomorrow though so I thought I'd show you today.  Great pattern and I'm really happy with how it knitted up.  I think it is a nice blanket for a boy.

As for the name, well  I don't know for sure what they're going to name him, but the parents are HUGE LOTR fans, so I'm thinking there's a pretty good chance he'll be Smaug.  I mean, why not?
