Baby Realta

I actually finished this last week but I just haven't had the chance to post it. This is the same pattern as the Realta afghan, but done in worsted weight yarn and in more demure colours. It's destined for my new niece as a ... um, what do you call them? Blankets that you plonk gently lay babies on so they can flail around wave their little limbs about? Let's just call it an extra thick blanket for the sofa or the floor.

Anyway, same pattern, different colour combination:

I love those colors. I'm thinking shades of purple would also be gorgeous. Love it!

Lovely.
And so differently looking from the "original" pattern. At first sight, you wouldn't believe that it's the same one.
I'm so much looking forward to the one I'll be doing somewhen in the future when all craftsmen have left the house, when water is running where it should :-)), all walls are closed and tiled again, and all that nasty dust is gone, all clean and tidy.......
