Here is a picture of the Bulky Baby Blanket finished. I took some other pictures, but the colour was awful on the iphone camera. This is a much better representation of the apple green and robin's egg blue. I love the combination and they are favourites of the mom-to-be. As a shower gift, I gave her some receiving blankets with these colours as well.
I love how the mitred edging finishes the blanket, but I will really have to do some blocking when I wash it. The sides are a little "ruffly" and no amount of adjusting seemed to help. I was tempted to take it all out and start again, but then hit my self over the head to remind me that it's a "baby" blanket. I doubt the baby will care that it may not be completely flat.
Berrocco has a really cute free sweater pattern on their website that I might just do to go with it. I think it would be adorable in these same colours. Here's the pattern:
I have the time. And I think these colours will work equally as well for a boy or girl baby. And baby sweaters go sooooo quickly.
This baby is due mid-September and the next one isn't due till October. So if everyone stays on track, I can too LOL.
