My second thought was "What am I going to knit for him??" Ha! A true knitting addict's reaction.
I wanted this to be a true BABY'S blanket - one that has lots of texture and flappy taggie things to grab and chew... one that is big enough to lay on the ground and give the little one some room to roll around a bit...and...one that is easy enough to knit while binge-watching House of Cards (or whatever your current guilty pleasure is).
These colors were selected to match my new NephewвЂ™s nursery, but this super soft cotton yarn comes in TONS of color... so you can play with them to make it more feminine, neutral, brighter, standard baby pastel, or just stick with these colors if you like it as-is. Plus this yarn is machine washable and dryer safe, so the new parents will be able to take care of it with ease. Have fun, and happy knitting!
