I made a baby blanket for a firend of mine.  I use the same wool as used in traditional cowichan sweaters.  It's 100% virgin sheep wool and it's AMAZING stuff! It's rather bulky!  I use an 8 or 10mm hook most of the time.  Anyways here is the blanket.  I think it turned out rather well!

I also did a giant one in all white a while back:

OMG I love this! What really caught my eye is I have some squares from an UFP(unfinished project) that are exactly the same colors and done in the granny square pattern. I love when people make things in unconventional colors. Great job!
