A friend is due with her 4th boy any minute now. Theoretically, I'll see her tomorrow so I can give her this.
It's a blanket, made with Knit Picks Crayon yarn, in yellow, orange, green and purple. Knit on size 7 needles. This is a seriously soft blankie.
It's 9 blocks, 6"X7.5", 4 in garter stitch, 4 in stockinette. One is striped, because I thought the center block should be sort of a focal point. Here it is before I added the miter square border. And after I added the border and washed it. Did I mention it is a seriously soft blankie?
See the button and the strip of fabric? I picked up stitches and knit a garter stitch strip, with a button hole. It can be attached now to the handle of the car seat or the stroller, so it won't get lost. I really wanted something like that when I'd had babies, so I figured out how to make one, and now every baby blanket I knit is going to have one.
I'm quite proud of the button hole and loop. :)
