free Red Heart baby blanket pattern. I used bamboo needles although I had some trouble with the knobby texture of the yarn. It probably would have been better to use aluminum needles but I like the feel of the bamboo.
I bought the yarn for this project before we knew the gender of the baby. It's white with pastel flecks but apparently the baby's daddy thought the pink showed up a bit more predominately, hence the baby blue onsie in the picture. Daddy doesn't want his boy to be confused with a girl. That wouldn't be appropriate for the future quarterback of the Pittsburgh Steelers.
