Here are 3 blankets I've been working on this summer.
The blue one is a Pinwheel Blanket I just finished.
Pattern: Pinwheel Blanket
Yarn: Bernat Baby Boucle in Spring Breeze, 5 skeins (one for the border alone).
Needles: Size 8 circs - I started with 5 DPNs, switched to 29″ and finally a 47″ circ.
Border: Garter stitch, increasing on the purl side with pfb.
Final measurments: about 39″ diameter
Knit for: My cousin's baby boy - Chase (born on Aug 11)
Time spent knitting: On and off for 2 months. On and off for a week to finish the border and bind off.
The yellow one is a Ruffled Blocks Baby Blanket with a pink ruffle. At the time of the pic, the blanket was about 2/3 done.

Needles: Size 8 circs for the blanket, size 8 straights for the ruffle.

The multi-color is a st/rev-st toddler blanket - no pattern, but like the ones my grandmother always made for us.
