Finished my first project in 2016, altho' I've been working on this baby blanket for some time.  (The baby is due next week!)  The pattern is from a book called "wanderlust: Modern Bohemian knits" and the pattern is "Chutes and Ladders" after the old kids game.  I modified it a little; flipping one of the cable panels so the diagonals mirror each other.


It was a surprisingly easy pattern, quickly memorized, altho' next time I'll make it in superwash wool rather than my usual cheapo yarn.  Pairing it with a cotton blanket I made some time ago that I happened to name "Duck Duck Goose". 

It's all fun and games until someone has to take a nap... Grin

What gorgeous texture!  The yarn you selected is perfect to show off the stitches!
