I recently found out I'm expecting (YAY ) and I've decided to knit this throw as a baby blanket in different colors. I'm thinking I'll use a thinner yarn and smaller needles to get a good gauge. And instead of throwing in a lot of colors, I'm thinking about doing a checkerboard style (I'm absolutely convinced it'll be a girl, so I'm going with white and pink. And if I'm wrong, I have plenty of prego friends...one of em is bound to be carrying a little lady.) But I'm sure if you don't know if it's a boy or girl you could make it neutral with some different colors. It calls for 6, so maybe white, pink, blue, green, yellow, and one of those white yarns that has colors mixed in.

Anyway, I'm so excited to start, because this looks like such a fun pattern to do! Hope that helps

I just bought the yarn today at Wal-fart and it is so nice and squishy I can't wait to cast on!

Oooooooh, I LOVE that! Hmm, I'm thinking I'll have to make 2 baby blankets now! :XX:

I wonder though, what do they mean by:

"Next round, make 1 stitch in each stitch (10 stitches)."

What kind of increase do you do there? And does Amy have a video for that? Or is it just any increase you want? I'm not much good at increases :(

Oh, and thanks everybody! I started the checkerboard blanket last night, but I think I messed up the second square (I was watching Law & Order...LOVE that show...and got slightly distracted). But it's hardly noticeable. Still, the OCD in me is saying "Frog it! Frog it! Just Frog it!!!" Ahh, who knows. Although I'd hate to think that I knitted til my right ring finger was seriously numb for nothing! (BTW, 12 hours later, that finger's still numb...is that normal???)
