I wanted to make s baby blanket for my friends that incorporated things that they liked and might want to share with their baby as he grows up. For example skiing, camping in their VW tea and cakes, and travelling. It turned out really well (a bit late but lots of work!) and they loved it. Patterns were mostly hand drawn in graph paper or done on knitwit pattern maker, one or two were from Pinterest. I did all the squares then did a pick up and knit border and lined with fleece. I used the happy knitter tag on this because I found knitting it very good for my mood-I have bipolar and was going through a rough patch and planning and making this blanket gave me something positive and practical to do, because it is all small squares it felt broken up into achievable chunks too. I am very proud of it, and giving it to my friend felt great!
