baby blankets

our friends PC and mariana are having a baby, due at the end of december.  PC was the best man in our wedding and mariana did our hair so, i wanted to make them two blankets instead of my usual one blanket.  i think i've made at least 15 of the same blanket for friends having babies.  it is the Big Bad Baby Blanket from Debbie Stoller's Stitch and BItch.  It uses eight skeins of Koigu  KPPPM.  I always change that to four skeins of KPPPM and four skeins of the natural KPM (color 00).  the second blanket i made is what i am super excited to give mariana.  i loved page's project from the purl bee, the cozy quick blankie ruby's room will be purple and black and white with musical instruments throughout the room (the parents are both drummers and mariana has an awesome voice, too).  so, instead of the shot cotton that page used, i used the purple string instruments from yuwa with the michael miller fleece.  it was super quick and it seems very cozy!  i wish i could curl up in it right now but, i'm a bit bigger than a baby!
