Usually when expectant parents express a color preference for a baby blanket, they’ve painted the nursery or picked a “theme” of some sort, but S and J weren’t constrained by such narrow thinking. “Orange!” S said. “And blue,” added J. “Mets colors.”
Their wish, my command. I chose Purl Soho’s Chevron Baby Blanket and KnitPicks Dishie in Solids and Multi (doubled) for a bright, washable cotton wrap that will keep this late-spring baby cozy through the regular season . . . and perhaps into October!
