Time for another baby blanket (it seems everyone I know is having babies!)

A dear, dear friend of mine is expecting her second child and this time around she is having a girl! I had discovered this lovely pattern on http://attic24.typepad.com/weblog/granny-stripe.html and figured this would make an awesome baby blanket.

(Please excuse the towel on my head. My hair was still wet from the shower when my best friend took this pic!)

I am so pleased with how it turned out! I used Vanna's Choice baby (the pink and blue), Caron (the creamy white) and Loop & Threads Impeccable (the purple) worsted weight years. It measures 34" across and is 36" long.

It was a big hit at the baby shower. Two of my dear friend's aunts threatened to snatch it and use it as a lap blanket because they were wearing purple and blue tops and it matched their outfits. Everyone loved how "professional" it looked. I was so glad that it was so well received.

Here is a pic of the happy mom with the blanket! (and somebody's elbow)

Comments welcome! Thanks for looking!

What a gorgeous blanket Smiley  I love the non-pastels that aren't blindingly bright.
