My friend Beth lives near Dallas, TX so when she announced she was having a baby, her climate excluded many of the more obvious knitted baby objects. Including a blanket for warmth. So I knitted one for interested that was large enough for the baby to play on. Beth is interested in culture and art; it is one of the things that drew us together when we were both at UMinn; so I thought she would be interested in the premise of this blanket.
Being who I am, I was unable to knit this in just two colors, so I started out with several different reds and when those ran out I ended up with a rainbow of colors:
I finished the blanket in time for Kendra’a first birthday; which is not bad considering that it is big enough for a queen-sized bed.
