Ruby's blanket

I have the most adorable grand niece, I have yet to meet her but I've seen the pictures and she is a doll - see for yourself.

I wanted to make her something special so I found this pattern on Ravelry and a lovely cotton from Plymouth called Fantasy Naturale. It's a four ply twist of various shades of pink and fuschia - I don't do baby colors. It was a fun and easy knit and went amazingly fast.

Wonderfully cheerful!
...and babies like strong colours...

Both blanket and baby are beautiful. Babies always look so drab wrapped in pale colours. Your choice is wonderful.

Scott: What a cutie and look at that smile! Bound to make everyone's day happier. I work with babies at our local public library every Wednesday and yesterday we had 42 of them for play and story time. I was exhausted by the end of the hour.
The blanket is a great pattern and I need to make one as I just became a great uncle once again and would like to knit something easy. Where on Ralvery did you find this pattern?

Beautiful work and beautiful baby! I have a friend who is expecting and have been looking for a pattern. The last one I did was a huge washcloth pattern and I'd like something a bit more interesting this time. Where did you get the pattern?

Quite a lovely piece of work...and that goes for the blanket also! Congrats on both.

Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

Thanks everybody. I hope Ruby likes her blanket, I'm going to post it tomorrow and with any luck she'll have next week sometime. I created a PDF of the pattern and posted it on my original entry as an attachment called Sunny Baby Blanket. Evidently you can only post attachment to the opening entry of a blog. Enjoy!

beautiful.....both the baby and the blanket. I like how the color you chose(ruby) matches her name. I guess that was intentional. Thanks for sharing the pics and also the pattern. In my stash it goes for later. :)
