FO: Babes in the Woods blanket
2011 will forever be known to me as The Year of the Baby Blanket. I spent 12 straight months knitting nothing but baby blankets. Here is the last one!

Free pattern from Caron: http://www.caron.com/projects/ss/ss_...s_blanket.html

My ravelry notes with more pictures: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/Shan...s-baby-blanket





That is my co-worker's son, James, who is now 5 weeks old.

Oh, how adorable! You've done wonderful work on your baby blankets. This one is a perfect combination of color and pattern. And the baby agrees.

And thanks so much for including that darlin' baby wrapped up in his blankie! Extra special treat!

Thank you! I was so proud of the color and pattern-- I chose it BEFORE I knew that she wanted to go with a jungle theme and prefered gender-neutral colors. It couldn't have been more perfect.
