I spend a lot of time on Purlbee, I love most of the projects that propose, I like their design, a mix of simplicity with a twist. I knit their “thank you hat” a couple of times, use their blanket projects for inspiration, etc.
Here’s just a quick picture of the blanket I made using Petit Pan bias. It’s so simple, just adding a cute printed bias turns a basic rectangle of fleece into a really cool blanket. I think this would make a perfect quick project for a gift to a friend with a newborn.
