M&O Baby Blanket

Cold season sidetracked me for a bit. Now that I am feeling better I have returned to the baby blankets. I am using a lovely 'kinked' white cotton for my 39" wide warp. You could not believe how soft this cotton is even before wet finish. I picked up this yarn from a local retail knitter. (I should have bought more ;) ) The warp is long enough for two blankets.

The weft is a variegated cotton flake from Yarn Barn. I was not sure if I would like the pastel variegation, but I really am pleased with the result. It seems perfect for the gender neutral blanket. Hopefully I have enough of the cotton flake for both blankets. Maybe I need to do a yarn order ....
