Baby knits: Giggles baby blanket
Babies. They're popping up all over the place this time of year and the age old question "What do I knit for the freshly hatched offspring of (insert proud parent's name here)?" is never far from a knitter's lips. Baby blankets rule all if you want to impress and give the wee one a woolly hug, and the Giggles Baby Blanket is a brilliant one to give.
Designed by budding knit-obsessed designer Kate Lemmers (the marvellously named Ivanna Nit-Moore on Ravelry), this splendid swaddling bit of stitching is a simple knit with a spring/summer style and a lovely texture. Perfect for draping on the tiny new addition to the family.
Added bonus is that it doesn't need blocking. One less job for you, more time to knit something selfish once you're done.
