My Aunt and Uncle are having a baby boy soon and I want to knit them a blanket as a gift for the baby shower. Luckily being the busy college student I am I have until July to do so.

Anyways, I have been having trouble picking a pattern to use. I was wondering if you guys could point me to to some good patterns?

Have you checked out

www.knittingpatterncentral.com ?

Another option would be to look thorugh a stitch dictionary for a stitch pattern you like and use one of those with a garter stitch border, although keep in mind that if you use something soft and fluffy, you won't have as much stitch definition.

Actually I haven't thought to check there yet. I don't know why I didn't! :p

That is a good idea to check a stitch dictionary! Thanks! :)
