Lime and Aqua Ripples

When I found out a friend was having a baby boy, I was so excited that I ran right out to get the yarn for this project. I'd had the idea for a while and was happy to have an excuse to make it! I love bright, more "unconventional" colors for baby gifts.

The blanket turned out so summery and fun that I searched out a boy's sun hat pattern for a little something to go with it. Now let's hope it still fits him when he gets it, since I'm a procrastinator and I hear he's growing like a weed!

And because I just can't resist a close-up of the lovely ripples...
