I have a friend whose first grandbaby will be born soon. I found a lovely feather and fan crib blanket pattern and have started knitting it in the suggested yarn, which is Cascade 220 Superwash.
I'm about a third way through, but now I'm questioning my choice of yarn. I've had a couple of people comment, at different times, that they didn't understand why I would knit a wool blanket for a baby who will be born in the summer.
Did I make a mistake? I thought superwash wool was supposed to be okay for baby projects, and that wool was okay for year-round use. Also the feather and fan pattern has 'holes' in it so it shouldn't be too terribly warm - at least I don't think so, but maybe I'm wrong!
