As I mentioned yesterday, my good friend Hollie is having a baby. I've been dying to knit this baby blanket (OpArt on Knitty) for several years, so I took this opportunity to go ahead and do it!
I knew the baby's room was going to be grey and Hollie's favorite color is green, so that's how I chose these colors.
The style is really more mine that Hollie's, but I hope she'll get some use out of it. Babies always seem to need a lot of blankets, right?
As recommended in the pattern, I used KnitPicks Swish DK yarn. It's superwash wool, so it's pretty easy to care for when the baby pukes on it. It's also really squishy, which is great. It didn't turn out exactly as I had hoped, but I'm pretty happy with it overall.
