While I'm at it, I can share this!

Shortly after I found out we were having a little boy I started this blanket. It ended up on hold during the last few months of the pregnancy, due to my need to comlpete the nursery. I even took it to the hospital with me to work on while I was being Induced... Nada. I was lucky enough to stay with my Mother-In-Law for 2 weeks over Thanksgiving. I was able to finish 3 projects! I am pretty proud of this one; it's not meant to be perfect. However it is the perfect size for traveling, which we are doing plenty of so far this Winter.

  1. I was immediately drawn to the bright colors and simpleness of this blanket. It's exactly the kind of blanket I want to make for my grandchild be it a boy or girl. Thanks for the great idea!

  2. This is exactly what I was looking for! I love that it's made from individual squares - I knit on the go a lot and the thought of having to carry around a bulky blanket was less than appealing. Thank you so much for this pattern!
