When some friends of mine found out they were having a girl they announced at the same time "No pink, please!". I understood that very well, they are not the pink kind of people, not the traditional pale pastel baby pink anyway. So I made this blanket for them. It was finished on Valentines day, and the baby was born the day after.
I got the inspiration for this from Cara at January One. I loved her idea for her blanket so much I just plain copied it pretty much down to yarn and colour choice, they are a bit different.
The yarn used is Rauma Finull. After I decided I was done knitting I put the blanket inside a zippered duvet cover and felted it slightly in my washing machine (normal detergent and cycle, medium temperature). I think that is what makes the blanket such a good blanket. Soft, warm, sturdy, machine-washable.
I hope little Henriette is going to love this blanket for years to come.
(I bought her a yellow onsie too, see; not pink!)
