I made blankets for a friend's baby and for her 6 year old. The friend is mostly an online friend but we have met a few times. I needed a project and thought she would appreciate it. The blanket is one I may have made before from a book of blankets with large borders that I have. It was fun and easy to make.
I asked the friend what colors her son likes and see said orange, gold, yellow so I made this with assorted yarn - some that we had and some that I had to go and get. I had a hard time finding the rainbow variegated but I do like the more orange/yellow/green variegated. This blanket seemed to go very slowly which is strange because the last big granny square blanket I made was done in about 8-10 days.
I'll see my friend this weekend to give her both blankets.
