Well, I knit this blanket a little while ago and it is quite repetitive.  But, the important thing is that my friend loved it.  Here it is!



I knit it in a cheap acrylic, so the other side has a green cotton lining on it so it can stil be warm, but washable.

oooo, very pretty!  I really like the lining idea and the colors.
I FINALLY finished mine; I just need to weave in the ends and do a bit of blocking.  Which I actually really need to get my ass on, since Baby's showing up any day now...

The blanket is beautiful Smiley I'm currently making one for  my son in Bernat Camouflage in blues.  My digital dock is broken so I cannot seem to upload anything!  I can only hope it comes out as good as yours Cool

i began mine a couple of months ago using Lorna's Laces Shepherd Worsted in Iris Garden. because i'm not double stranding, i cut the yardage requirement in half, but went up to 900 yards. i bought the yarn on ebay, but basically, this is a $60 baby blanket. which was a big splurge, i'll admit... but it's my first niece! that's the excuse i'm going with. also, the colors aren't as intense as they look here. i'm just past the halfway mark and i'm barely into my second ball (of 4), so i'll have lots left over.

I didn't think about using a variegated yarn to make a BBBB I did try stripes with one of the ones I made.  i've thought about knitting one but larger because I think it looks neat.  It'd be something to knit on while watching TV because the pattern is so easy.

Beautiful!   Shocked  I love the way there's almost an argyle-style pattern emerging from the yarn.  That's a very lucky niece you have Smiley

I knew from the beginning that I would get so tired of the BBBB, so I cheated and changed the pattern to use chunky yarn and big needles(11).  It went so fast that I didn't have time to get bored! It also made for a great commuter project, if you're the type that knits on the train.  Now, if only I could find the stitch count that I wrote down somewhere...  I think it was a 6 or 7 stitch edge with perhaps 35k, 35p in the middle, perhaps?  Anyway, the recipient adored it and had no idea I was cheating Smiley

It was Red Heart (100% acrylic), but I don't remember the color.  I used the leftovers to make my sister one of those watches on Knitty.  I didn't get to use any for me  Cry.
