Pay It Forward 2013 - Second delivery

Today, I'm shipping a baby blanket for my sister's baby, Isabella, to Montana. This blanket is a little weird since it is knit on the bias and ends up as a diamond rather than a square. But it was a breeze to knit up. I'm curious to know if you use another skein (or two) of the middle color, if you would end up with more of a square. As it is, I'm happy with the result and I love the way the three colors look together. Plus, the wool-acrylic blend ensures my sister will not accidentally shrink it when washing.
You can find the pattern here. I couldn't find Cotton-Ease so I used Wool-Ease instead. This lent a slightly fuzzy quality to the blanket.
