The week before Thanksgiving, my sister called to "remind" me that I had promised to knit a baby blanket for her coworker who's adopting from China . . . and to say she needed it in 2 days. To be fair, she'd been asking me for about a month and I hadn't bothered to actually start the thing, so it's not entirely her fault that I had to knit a baby blanket in 2 days, but I can tell you I wasn't happy to get that phone call!
Size 11 needles, 72 sts and the feather and fan stitch is all you need if you have the same silly deadline I was facing. It's a small carriage size blanket, but plenty big enough to use (It measured about 25" wide and 28" long). The night she was leaving I wove in the last few ends, handed it to her and left for my place, having knit nothing but the blanket for 2 days straight.
The things you do for your little sister! ;o)
Pattern: dead easy feather and fan
Yarn: Filatura di Crosa Zarella in Multi Pink and White, held double

It’s so cute! I like feather and fan…it’s so simple but it looks like a million bucks.
It’s lovely and just think, the 2 days of knitting
it will pale in comparison to the joy it will bring! And yes, aren’t little sisters a joy?!? (I’m one myself!!) You are a great big sister!
no one would ever know it took two days except those reading your blog…you could have told us all it took you weeks we would have believe you! came out great!
Very cute colors!
