Our friends Rachel and Colin had a little boy in January, so I decided to make him a little blanket.
I made it out of Lion Brand Cotton-Ease which, in their new selection of bright colours, is one of the squishiest, kid-friendly (ie: machine washable, and super-durable) yarns I've come across (the paler greys and pinks are noticeably thinner and less squishy). Its a shame these colours are so hard to come by in Vancouver - Michael's doesn't carry them, so you have to order them directly from the Lion Brand site, or one of a handful of re-sellers on Amazon. (you can get them at the Lion Brand Studio Store too, should you happen to be in NYC sometime!)
I backed the blanket with this fun purple and teal amoeba-like flannel - ideal for a doctor's kid, I think! :)
