These two blankets are for Project Linus, which donates handmade blankets to at-risk newborns and other children in need of comfort. The red and white one was a puzzle that I worked on for quite a while. How to use that enormous skein of Hot Red yarn in a baby blanket? When I saw someone knitting this blanket in a different color, I knew this would work. The second blanket is a pattern I've knit before, changing colors to make it look like a quilt.
