I started this blankie for my (now) 7 week old, A, when I was 3 months pregnant. I bought a lot of yarn (Mission Falls 1824 cotton) because I planned on making a big blanket, much like my older son's. Paranoia about not finishing it caused me to make more of a stroller-sized blanket. So of course I have a lot of that yarn left. More on that later.
I made this with 2 strands held together (butter and ivory) on size 15 needles. It made for a very loose gauge, but I think it's pretty. Well, of course I do.
