stripy baby blanket

Earlier this week I finished knitting the baby blanket for my cousin's little one. It's super simple, just double moss (I really love the pattern and texture that stitch makes), but I think the coloured stripes are the stars here really. The sex of the baby was kept a secret so I thought a rainbow would work either way. Also, if you can't decide on one colour, why not have them all, eh?

I had intended to make a quilt for the baby but having seen some excellent knitted baby blankets (Elise's for a start) they inspired me to try something different. I do miss patchwork but the thing is, knitting (and crochet) is just way more sociable and portable than quilting. It seems to be all about the yarn for me at the moment. Anyhoo, I'm pleased with how this turned out and I can't wait to give it, and the crochet hat, to the newest little one to join the family who, by the way, arrived a couple of weeks ago. It was a girl :)
