Baby blanket knitting has arisen anew! My latest blanket was made for baby Adela, a northern California-based baby. Given the moderate climate in the Bay Area, I decided to knit a lacy blanket with my new favorite lightweight baby blanket yarn, the Lion Brand LB Collection Cotton Bamboo.
I found a great pattern on Ravelry, and modified it to make an approximate two-feet by two-feet blanket. The pattern knit up extremely well, and although I don't usually repeat blanket patterns, I may do so with this great construction. More details follow the pictures below.
