I finished the blanket earlier this week, and I was so crazy over the colors that I whipped up a set of booties and mitts to match.
I feel like this is a set I’ll be making in a variety of color combinations for years to come.

We’re celebrating a birthday tomorrow, and we have family arriving for the weekend. I’m more than a little excited about both of those. I’m also excited to have kept my “no new yarn” promise for two months! To be honest, even with my various projects there’s barely a dent in my stash. With so much Bernat Softee baby yarn on hand, I went in search of baby blanket patterns. I was browsing squares and motifs last week when I was suddenly star struck!
I grabbed all the traditionally girly colors, including a partial skein of Candy Baby and went to work. My test models heartily approve of both my color palette and my shaping. I’ll post an update once the whole blanket is complete, I’m thinking a total of 26 rows plus edging.
Miss Baby is pretty impressed too.
Thanks for stopping by!
