This is a baby blanket for a friend in San Diego. I started the middle section, in linen stitch, possibly my favorite stitch. I like how the alternating the yarns gives it a subtle striping look. The borders in garter stitch, finished off with a row of single crochet. Simple and nice.
Usually I'm not a big fan of garter stitch, but this project changed my mind. I may do future blankets in garter stitch.
Tonight, I'm going to cast on for Best Friend's Emerald sweater from Knitty. She says she's in no hurry, but it was supposed to be her birthday present, back in Nov '08.
