I was commissioned to make a baby blanket. The person is a friend of my husband and her daughter is having a baby. The sex is unknown and the request was for a green, gray, and cream or white blanket. The rest of the decisions were designer's choice. I am in the middle of a Ripple Blanket by Lucy at Attic 24 and decided that I would go with that pattern. The yarn is from, StyleCraft Special DK. I think it ships from the UK, but if you purchase $50 in yarn shipping is free, otherwise it is $4.95--can't beat that! The yarn is $2.95 for 100 grams and it comes in a pretty large color selection. It is 100% acrylic but is soft enough and of good quality.

This was a fun project and I love, love, love the colors together!

I gave myself the stipulation that I could not work on anything else at home (did not include projects worked while on the train) until this was finished. It is done 2 months early!

Baci e abbracci...
