April Baby Blanket

Posting here will continue to be intermittent at best. Blogging just isn't a priority right now, and our home computer is mostly being used by my husband for work purposes. But I am reading a lot of blogs, and keeping up (somewhat) with Ravelry. Although picture posting there has been minimal lately too.

I've finished several projects since I last posted, most notably a sweater for my husband and a pair of mittens. But I don't have pictures of those yet. What I do have a picture of is a baby blanket that I made for a new cousin. It's the Mystery Blanket from Elizabeth Zimmerman's Knitter's Almanac. I modified it somewhat to elimiate the yarn-over holes and add colorful stripes.

I'm not thrilled with the way the colors came out (I think it's too much blue, even though it is a baby boy), but I sent it off anyway. This was a tough project. My tastes tend to be pretty traditional, but the mother owns a Marimekko shop. So I tried to pick bright colors and a pattern that is both modern and traditional.

I hope they like it!

I think it looks great - something about the red and blue square is particularly eyecatching.

What a wonderful blanket! The Marimekko store owner is sure to love it!

The blanket came out great! I'm looking forward to seeing pictures of the husband sweater.
