Block Baby Blanket Finished!
Here's an FO for ya:



I started back in February, but had two sweaters going at the same time so it took me until *gulp* one week after the baby was born to finish the blanket. I told the baby's parents that we should photoshop it into the "newborn" pics, lol.

The mistakes don't show in the thumbnail, but if you click on the image you can see them (like the second row from the bottom, I forgot to knit the first row between the third and fourth box, and did seed so it looks goofy. And in the two adjacent boxes ringed in yellow, I should have treated the yellow like two separate boxes to get that nice flat line like the rest of them).

I used Caron Simply Soft (except for the regular orange, which is Red Heart Soft). I believe the pattern is from a recent Creative Knitting, like maybe Jan/Feb? If you are interested, PM me and I will check.

Wow!! That is great - the colors are just fantastic and so "not normal" for a baby which is fabulous!

Yeah, I asked the parents if they had a color preference and they said orange/yellow/marigold. I was very relieved because baby colors can be a bit boring.

it looks very modern and I bet is is soft and cuddly. I think it will be a treasure! Even with your "personalized design features." good job!
