I blocked the OpArt baby blanket last night. This blanket is so neat! One of our sample knitters made it for us after Shawn dug up the free pattern from the Fall 2008 Knitty.
It looks amazing in high contrast colors (red & white, black & white) but if your nursery doesn't allow for those, it also looks great in many other colors. I had a hard time choosing the sample colors, but in the end I went with the bold red & white in Berroco Comfort DK. If I had to make a baby gift right now, this would be it!
I'm still plugging away on my Canopy Fingering Sweater... it's taking a while - I've been having some issues with my right hand, and the needles are tiny, so it's a bit slow going. It is precious though!
