I haven't made a ton of baby blankets in the last year or two...or well, it doesn't seem like I have compared to other baby boom times in my social circle. Usually I just halfass it,grab some yarn and make a bunch of stripes...lately, I've been more adventurous than usual and have been following more patterns. (Actually, now that I see that typed-out, I suppose following a pattern would generally be considered the less-adventurous route, wouldn't it?)
At any rate -- I made one of these, then had enough yarn left over to make another one so I did.
(I've got more of this same yarn left over, so like a true masochist, I'm starting another one of these. I never learn.)
