Blossom was one of the first 'garment' knits I did. I learned a lot, including how to mattress stitch the seams. I never tried Anouk, but Blossom was a very simple knit, so I'd have to recommends that.
I'll have to try and find the pictures of the one I made. It was one of my first good knitted projects, so the gauge was really off and I didn't pick the best yarn, but it was pretty. I don't know if the person I gave it to ever put it on her little girl tho.
