Is this colorful or what? While certainly not colors I would have chosen my son & daughter-in-law picked these for me to use to knit this blanket.
The pattern is called "Petunia Baby Blanket" from Caron.com. It calls for the pattern to be worked as a drop stitch; however, the drops are quite large in some places so I worked it using the Fair Isle technique to avoid having my new granddaughter getting her fingers & toes caught. I've never done Fair Isle before so doing it and locking in each stitch took a bit of fiddling to get the hang of. But now that it's done it looks beautiful and I'd certainly be up for doing another like this (but different colors please!).
