As promised, the blanket I finished for the boy child!
For this blanket we dyed the yarn together. He really loves orange! The yarn is my Superwash Worsted in color Snapdragon with Dragon Fire border.
The pattern is the same as the one I made my daughter, which is the Tweed Baby Blanket by Jared Flood (rav link). I just took the border and drew the same chart on graph paper, with the increases at the corners. Then I just put in increases and decreases to make points instead of waves. I really like the finished look.
He really likes it. He has a cold this week, so it was finished just in time for him to snuggle under it. He even told me it is one of the things which makes him happy. =)
