Wanted to share this because it was a wonderful quick knit for a baby you didn't plan to knit for. It's Edith Eig's Baby Blanket from Knit One Purl Two.
I have it up on my projects page on Ravelry
if anyone wants the link or to see more pics. It took me only 3 days, one of those nights I was up until 4 a.m. with a sick hubby, so really it was about a 4 day knit for me. It's supposed to be a double-stranded project (2 yarns at once) in a lighter yarn, but I had all this Vanna's Choice (heavier yarn) in the perfect colors and chose to do it single-stranded instead.
The colors were given by the mother, these are the baby room's accent colors.
