I also have been working on an item for a baby – so fun to knit for them. This is meant not to be a keepsake, but a workhorse baby blanket that can go into the washer and dryer with no second thoughts. Easy on the Mom and Dad, and not-too-warm for the baby who will be living in a no-snow climate:
Blanket Pattern: Hap Blanket by Ysolda (rav link), done with just one color. I’ve now done at least 5 patterns from her lovely Whimsical Little Knits Collection!
I think I’ll do a hat as well, probably my own Under the Big Top Hat in girly colors. (rav link)
