I made the 'circle of friends baby blanket' from Last Minute Knitted Gifts
the idea is to make it with a group of friends and each friend knits a strip
but i did it by myself and i don't recommend it, it took forever, but here it is  Grin
I used rowan yarn classics cashsoft dk

i've had my eye on that project for a while... but won't do it yet since i still have a crocheted blanket that still needs to be finished (it's so tedious... it's been over a year since i started it and it's still not done yet!). great job though... it's lovely : Grin

thanks everyone!  Smiley it took me two skeins of each color (seven colors, so fourteen skeins). I'm not sure how long it took me because I did it in spurts. The strips themselves weren't too bad, it's just garter stitch. The part that was a little obnoxious was sewing it together. I would recommend leaving the tails from color changes extra long. Mine weren't long enough so first i had to weave in all the ends and then attach new yarn to sew them up with. It's not blue or pink because it's for my aunt, who is adopting, and we don't know if she'll get a boy or a girl. I chose this pattern too because it's really generously sized, I think it will take them right up through kindergarten.  Grin I also recommend the yarn, rowan yarn classics cashsoft dk. It is a dream to work with (it has a little bit of cashmere in it), it comes in beautiful, sophisticated colors, and it is machine washable. also, I think it's the same price or a little cheaper than the rowan wool cotton the book uses.

Your blanket is gorgeous!  I love the colors you uses and personally, I would have a hard time parting with it!  Grin

Mistake?  No... it's an Unexpected Design Element.  I put it there on purpose.  *ahem*

I LOVE Cashsoft, I'm making my Grandma a cardigan with it right now... I can just imagine how beautiful and soft that blanket is.  Smiley man, i really want to do this now, I have three babies I need to knit for...don't think I can afford more cashsoft for a while though.

D'you think Caron's Simply Soft would work? Hm...cheap, but soft....
