I knitted this blanket for close friends that are currently expecting their second child.
It is super easy, as its names suggests and the simple construction is a good excuse to pick some bright colours. I rarely use garter stitch, but it dies make a nice springy cosy blanket. I choose Debbie Bliss Rialto dk as they had colours I liked. I have not been very impressed with Rowan of late and thought I'd give DB a go. Not much different to Rowans superwash wool that I can tell. It was a little splitty, but no problems other than joins in the balls (enraging). Colourways can be found on my Ravelry profile and the pattern is available here.
