This is the year of baby knitting. After my brief break from it in late March/early April, it was time to churn out some more.
Niece V got a blanket for her first birthday:
Made out of yarn gifted for Christmas (colorway is called Monet), and older yarn gifted from a friend's unused stash.
Here's a close-up of the pattern:
The pattern is very easy -- stripes of cream stockinette and colorful garter stitch with slipped stitch cable columns. Great mindless knitting. I actually got this done well ahead of the birthday party, which was a new experience.
Next update: Olympic Knitting finish line!
