I wanted to make a very special blanket for a friend's new baby (she'd been trying to have one for years!) so I turned to Debbie Bliss, of course! I love her designs and yarn! I picked the garter squares blanket from Baby Knits for Beginnershttp://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1570762481/sr=8-3/qid=1144346660/ref=pd_bbs_3/103-7519812-7583853?%5Fencoding=UTF8
I used 7 colors, instead of the 5 called for in the pattern, because I wanted a very colorful blanket.
Here's my cat Loki helping me piece all the little squares together -
And here's the finished product -
Not a difficult project at all (except for all the weaving) and fun for both beginners and intermediate folks, I think. Let me know what you think!
