Blanket begun

It'll take me many evenings to finish, but I have made a start to the blanket. I used the swatch shown yesterday to work out how many stitches to cast on for my blanket. One pattern repeat measures 4.5cm. I want the blanket width to be roughly 60cm. So I'll need 13 repeats. The pattern requires a multiple of 12 stitches plus 7. So I multiplied 13x12 and added 7= 163. Add 10 stitches for the garter stitch border. Voila, I cast on 173 stitches. The color of the yarn is apricot - I hope it doesn't look too pink here, I don't want pink! (No, I don't know whether the baby will be a boy or a girl.)
