This was knit for my newest niece, who lives in Maine. I usually do green blankets, but seeing as I’m behind in my knitting the baby’s been born and we’re sure she’s a girl… I therefore broke out of the mold and went with various pastels. While the Caron Perfect Match was pretty and gave the blanket a nice drape, it was murder on my hands. I never believed people who complained about acrylic before… I bought it because a: it needs to be run-over-with-the-minivan-durable, b: it felt soft in the skein (and, actually, is pretty good knit up), c: was cheap and so am I, and d: came in the colorway I wanted. This pattern, however, will work with any worsted-weight yarn, so substitute at will.
