That is so beautiful, did you just use baby yarn? I eat the ribbon. Wow! Did you make up your own pile of flesh?
What is the pile of flesh from?? Please do tell!
The pile of flesh is from one of those little pamphlet-like Leisure Arts books they sell at Ben Franklin and Wal-Mart, called "So Sweet Baby Afghans." The pile of flesh is called "Heartwarming Wrap." Those booklets usually cost $2 to $3 and there are five or six patterns in them, so that's not a bad deal.
This blanket is also on the cover of the booklet (albeit with the right amount of edging - I cut mine short because I hate to do edging!):http://www.leisurearts.com/crafts_needlework/item_detail.asp?item_num=75015&search=1#
I used Caron Simply Soft yarn because it's really soft and washable and easy to work with, but I think it's a little too heavy. My niece is due in January, so it's a good winter weight.
