Marni, I don't think I have EVER SEEN a baby blanket the surpasses yours in colorfulness, ingenuity, and skill! Really.
Thanks so very much for all the neat links, the colorfulness of the links, the great set up of the post...the whole entire thing was EYE CANDY from start to finish! And informative, as well!
Did you knit the 3 squares across the row..and just keep track of the patches as you approaced the next patch...kinda like colorblock work on a MEGA SCALE? Otherwise, I don't know how else you could knit it all in one piece. My brain is racing! I think the colorblock technique would work. And, you'd just have to keep track of the 3 under construction till they were complete...then tie on new colors for the next row of 3 patches across. (???)
Well, now I am inspired. Who is gonna have the next baby??? I must must must make something even half a wonderful as your baby blankie! Hmmm...all my daughters and daughters-in-law think they're done havin' babies. Oh well, hmmm...my oldest granddaughter is 21, and has a 'significant other'...a real keeper I might add! Maaaaaybe she's next!
Well, after college I guess. She's a junior at UW.
