Here is my Ruffled Blocks so far. I knew I would have to knit more ruffle, but I didnt know how much and I was anxious to get started on seaming, so now I have one side left.

That ruffle looks great! I spent some major quality time with my blanket yesterday.

Just a row and a half left and I can start the second one.

I did use intarsia. I also had to adjust the pattern. The pattern I am using is the same one that Aprilbetty made. Originally it is stockinette area with a reverse stockinette heart, but I made the hearts stockinette as well because the color didn't have very well defined lines in the reverse stockinette.

It is my first color work project and I'm kicking myself for it. Most of the time I have 11 different balls of yarn attached to the blanket. And I attach another five little pieces for each of the indents of the heart ( <3 <--this part) because I didn't want there to be loose yarn in the back for the baby's toes and fingers to pull on.

Lucky-Alf, Yes, crochet is much faster, once you get the hang of it. Which is why I am doing crochet right now. I have 3 blankets to get out within the month. Darn people at work all getting pregnant at the same time...it must be in the water...lol. I had been procrastinating and now I need them done quick. Crochet does use more yarn, so it's either use more yarn or more time when it comes to choosing between knit or crochet...at least for baby blankets.

Stagebear, that ruffled blanket looks wonderful.

ADAllen and Aprilbetty, I love those heart blankets. It it so cool to see the same pattern done in very different styles.

I am crocheting the baby blanket I am doing in 12 12" squares. Half are blue/pink varigated yarn and the other half are plain white. I think I will do a diagonal pattern with the squares. I don't have any pics yet, but I will soon.

Wow, everyone's blankets look great!!! Good work, guys

I'm about 1/4 of the way through my feather & fan blanket for DH's cousin. It's going pretty quickly, and I really like the way its turning out. I'm using Laines du Nord Baby Cover - so soft and warm, perfect for a winter baby.
