I just started another baby blanket last night, and it was quick work to finish my part! I used Caron Simply Soft, in a nice sunny yellow, with a "Simple Checker" design. (page 37 in the Big Book of Knitting Stitch Patterns.)
Now, I'm working on another blanket, called "Mexican Fiesta". I'm using a bright purple Caron Simply Soft yarn for that one. Photos soon!
