This summer, I furiously finished knitting a baby blanket for my good friend Michelle's second little boy. There are four stripes which represent the four people in their family.
I bought the yarn at Purl Soho while in NYC in the spring. It's a super soft wool. The pattern is from More Last-Minute Knitted Gifts and I changed it a bit by not adding another white border on the top and bottom. It already was very big! It's garter stitch the whole way through which is easy to knit up. Plus there was no piecing at the end as it just kept continuing on which was nice.
I hope Baby Blane has many snugly nights under this blanket.
