Before I start the girl blanket I'm going to try and finish the 'just-in-case-it's-a-boy' blanket that I started. The blanket I went with for the boy pick is the Maude Honeycomb Blanket by Kristen Rengren out of the Vintage Baby Knits book.
Here's a close up shot of my progress. I love the retro feel of this pattern. It's also a surprisingly simple knit. The cool blue and dark gray look great together, don't you think?
