We are expecting a new grand-daughter in July, and I decided to make something other than a quilt. The yarn for this baby blanket is the softest I've ever seen. It's actually called "Baby Blanket" by Bernat. The pattern is super easy, knitted on the diagonal with no counting. I'll just stop and reverse when I feel it's big enough. It's very relaxing to work this way while sitting in front of the TV.
