We visited my brother-in-law and Nephew One a few weeks ago and it was lovely to see Blanket One being used every day. The kid takes it to nursery for his afternoon nap and it goes in his pushchair when not at nursery. Makes all the knitting worthwhile! Hooray!
I'm enjoying the garter stitch though I'm starting to hanker after something a little more complex and have plenty of WIPs sitting idle which I'm looking forward to picking up once the blanket is done.
I did have a fling with a pair of baby booties for Nephew Two which were part of our bundle of goodies for Nephew Two when we visited. They were suitably cooed over. I think these are the eighth pair of Saartje's Booties I've made, such a fast and squidgy pattern, worth a bit of infidelity.
