3 blankets - now all FOs
Here are 3 blankets I've been working on this summer.

The blue one is a Pinwheel Blanket I just finished.
Specs:
Pattern: Pinwheel Blanket
Yarn: Bernat Baby Boucle in Spring Breeze, 5 skeins (one for the border alone).
Needles: Size 8 circs - I started with 5 DPNs, switched to 29″ and finally a 47″ circ.
Border: Garter stitch, increasing on the purl side with pfb.
Final measurments: about 39″ diameter
Knit for: My cousin's baby boy - Chase (born on Aug 11)
Time spent knitting: On and off for 2 months. On and off for a week to finish the border and bind off.

The yellow one is a Ruffled Blocks Baby Blanket with a pink ruffle. At the time of the pic, the blanket was about 2/3 done.
Specs:
Pattern: Ruffled Blocks Baby Blanket
Yarn: Caron Simply Soft Off White and Soft Pink
Needles: Size 8 circs for the blanket, size 8 straights for the ruffle.
Knit for: My bf's cousin who is due around Thanksgiving
Time spent knitting: on and off for a month to get 1/3 done.

The multi-color is a st/rev-st toddler blanket - no pattern, but like the ones my grandmother always made for us.
Specs:
Pattern: none
Yarn: Lion Brand Pound of Love - 1 skein each of green, pink, blue and purple (her favorite colors)
Needles: Size 50.
Final measurments: should be close to 40" by 60"
Knit for: My bf's cousin's 4-yr old daughter and soon to be big sister
Time spent knitting: should be about 6 hours when I'm done.
