Well, the baby blanket is off with Ken to band rehearsal, headed for its new owner. I made it of washable merino yarn, but that's not the same as washing cotton or something. You can wash it in the machine, but just tossing it in the dryer like a towel is not recommended. So I hope it's not too much of a pain for a new mom to take care of. Little as I like the less expensive acrylic yarns, they do have the advantage of washing and drying easily for babies.
So, the blankie leaves home. I hope it gives joy.
