Two baby blankets

Ok here's some progress on my baby blankets, the Babette and the SmÃ¥ Skridt (Baby steps) that I blogged about here and here earlier. The babette has been slow progress because I've been busy applying to schools after my exam. Also because I'm not really enjoying putting the squares together. Should remember that when I do any more modular knitting or crochet. I finally got my first 2 panels ready. I don't have a complete plan for the entire blanket except that I want it to be big enough to last a while for my baby. I plan each panel as I put it together and it's not as per the Babette pattern either. Here are pictures of Panels 1 and 2.

And I finally finished the Baby Steps blanket. I wish I'd chosen more contrasting colors. Seems like the blue is blending into the green here. I wanted to make an easily maintainable blanket on account of it being a gift and I wanted to use yarn from my stash. So these colors were the best choice I could make. Details and more pictures of this project on Ravelry here.

And do you see why it's called Baby Steps, those stripes look like a staircase!
