One of my oldest friends had a baby at the beginning of October, so I knit him a blanket.
I like blankets for baby gifts, since they won’t outgrow them and will snuggle them into their dotage, thinking fondly of their Auntie Steph, who gave them all the best books and helped them decide on a favorite whisky. Eventually.
The yarn is Cascade 220 superwash and the pattern is an old store pattern from School Products that doesn’t seem to be on Ravelry, I’m sorry to say. It’s easy, though tedious, to knit and comes out look rather splendid, if I do say so myself.
