Baby babette

I finally found a reason (excuse?) to cast on this pattern. It is of course, the Babette Blanket or rather my vintage version of it, courtesy of Good Housekeeping. I drove over to Clacton yesterday for a change and of course while I was there I had to look in the local yarn shop. The Woolcabin have moved and this was my first visit to their new premises. It's bigger and brighter inside and there's plenty of selection as usual. Their website doesn't actually do them justice as it doesn't have all the stock listed and they're so friendly and helpful. If you're in the area, it's definately worth a visit.

Anyhow whilst I was browsing I came across the Stylecraft Kon-Tiki. It's a 50/50 cotton/acrylic blend and is lovely and soft and the colours just screamed baby blanket to me. Add to that that it's both machine washable and tumble dryer friendly, what more could you ask? I came home found a hook straight away and it's growing nicely.

Before anyone comments, no the blanket is not for me.
