Baby blanket for grandson
January was a busy one! I managed to eek out a couple sewing projects and this baby blanket for Mark's son and DIL who gave birth to a beautiful little boy a couple weeks ago, their second child. It is knit in Cotton Ease (of course!) I found the pattern on Ravelry here and loved all the variations. I decided to once again use a random stripe pattern and this blanket will coordinate nicely with the one I made for his cousin last year.
Speaking of CottonEase, these colors are long retired but they are called popsicle (turquoise), blueberry, candy blue, vanilla and licorice. I still have tons of the old CE left as a result of my little hoarding episode in 2005. I think I have every color in my stash except the strawberry creme. It does make a great baby yarn though since it is washable and even dryable but still quite soft for a cotton yarn. Even though I've done some de-stashing over the years, I've held on to this yarn.
